Shared household and aggrieved person definitions in DV Act 2005 are explained
Description:A perusal of section 2 f of DV act 2005, makes it clear that domestic relationship arises in respect of an aggrieved person if the aggrieved person had lived together with the respondent in a shared household. This living together can be either soon before filing of petition or at any point of time. The problem arises with the meaning of phrase “”at any point of time””. Does that mean that living together at any stage in the past would give right to a person to become aggrieved person to claim domestic relationship? I consider that “”at any point of time”” under the Act only means where an aggrieved person has been continuously living in the shared household as a matter of right but for some reason the aggrieved person
has to leave the house temporarily and when she returns, she is not allowed to enjoy her right to live in the property. However, at any point of time cannot be defined as at any point of time in the past whether the right to live survives or not.

Time limit for filing DV. (My personal experience is some advocate accpets this, but some not as in this case coupled was already seperated.) Need More study on this. Pls read other time limit related judgements
Description:A wife who lived in a domestic relationship earlier, but which
ceases only because of any domestic violence can certainly file an application
for such domestic violence that took place whilst she lived in that relationship.
Such application is required to be filed within a reasonable time to show that
relationship would give her the cause of action to sue under the D.V. Act for
the reliefs under the Act.
A wife who has returned from the USA and consequently from the
domestic relationship and lived in India for one year cannot file an application
with regard to that relationship after such time. Such wife cannot be taken to
be in any domestic relationship. The order of the learned Judge is, therefore,
correct. The writ petition is completely devoid of merits and accordingly
dismissed

DV can be filed against woman & Court should accept the form adopted by a
violated woman who applies under the DV Act.
Description:The petitioners made an application for dismissal of her application on the ground that an application under the DV Act cannot be made against any adult female person under Section 2(q) of the Act which defines the term “respondent”. The petitioners also made the application that the application under the DV Act was not in a prescribed form which was mandatory under Section 12 as well as under Section 23 of the Act and that the applicant has not furnished details of the previous litigation required under form II.

Maintainability of DV, after time limit

Such application is required to be filed within a reasonable time to show that relationship would give her the cause of action to sue under the D.V. Act for the reliefs under the Act.

BOMBAY NAGPUR BENCH, NAGPUR

No monetary relief under Section 20 of DV Act (PWDVA) unless domestic violence proved – Mumbai HC
Description:In my considered opinion, the learned Magistrate had committed an error in granting monetary relief to respondent Nos. 2 and 3 despite the fact that domestic violence could not be established. Though it is possible to say that the maintenance was permissible for respondent Nos. 2 and 3 (minor children) under Section 125 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, the monetary reliefs could not have been given to them under Section 20 of the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005. The view taken by the learned Magistrate and the appellate Court, in my opinion, is not correct and hence, I pass the following order.
