Consult the Best IPC 498 Lawyer in Delhi

When a woman is treated cruelly by her husband or another relative of that husband, that person is subject to a 3-year prison sentence as well as a fine. Cruelty has a broad term and no clear cut definition. Cruelty includes any actions that injure a person's physical, emotional, social, or mental state, inflict compulsion, compel sexual activity, or demand dowry or other property illegally.

What is IPC Section 498a?

According to Section 498A, committing cruelty is a crime that carries a fine and a sentence of up to three years. It is a cognizable offense (police have the authority to make an arrest without a warrant based on a report made by the offended lady or anybody connected to her) and it is also one that is not subject to bail. Within three years of the claimed incidence, a complaint must be submitted under this clause. Cruelty is another reason for divorce, and it applies to both husbands and wifes.

A 498 lawyer can help you and provide you the finest feasible remedy or redressal that you should claim even though it is difficult to understand the many procedures involved in filing complaints under section 498A of the IPC.
