Marriage dispute may refer to disagreements, often legal, regarding marriage. This may include divorce, annulment, or judicial separation in marriage as well.
Divorce is a challenging, messy, and emotionally draining process. After you've made it through the transition, you'll feel alive with the belief that you've made the right decision to improve your life. Despite how complicated it could be emotionally, it is a very time-consuming and sophisticated process on paper also.
Mutual consent divorce is a legal action taken by both husband and wife when they decide to end their relationship and get divorced on a mutual basis. In simpler words, when both the parties(husband and wife) mutually agreed to divorce, then it is called Mutual Consent Divorce.
A Contested Divorce is a form of divorce where either of the partners disagrees for mutual divorce or any dispute regarding property, child, and alimony is in between them. In those cases, they have to seek help from the court for their dissolution of marriage.
Maintenance is the amount set by the court (in case of contested divorce) to the spouse for the fulfillment of basic needs like housing, shelter, food, and clothing. The main motive behind such maintenance is to secure the right of the divorced partner who doesn't have financial support to live a better life.
Dowry means any valuable security given at or before the marriage by one party to a marriage to the other party to a marriage. In legal parlance, the death and violence due to dowry demands constitute domestic violence.
An annulment means declaring your marriage as void or null. Unlike divorce where both the partners seek to end their marriage, annulment simply declines the existence of any such marriage between the partners. But there is much more to it than it looks. It is not like a married couple who now no longer wish to live together can claim their marriage to be void.
