Rights And Responsibilities Of US Green Card Holders: A Reminder For The GC Holding 498A Wives

I am posting this here for the US based NRIs with marital issues.

They are a group often maligned by the radical feminists and by the media. What is never highlighted is the fact that these men are often used by their bitter halves to piggy back to the US and then dumped after these spouses get their green cards. They find themselves facing 498A and other cases in India especially after their spouses lose their case in the US court.

In an NRI divorce judgment, Justice Dhingra says:

“The decree passed by the court of USA has not been challenged by the complainant. She herself submitted to the jurisdiction of the USA Court and contested the case. She was living, at the time of contesting, the case in USA and continued to live in USA even after passing of decree till 2002. She even preferred an appeal, which was dismissed. Thus, it is not a case where decree was obtained by her husband clandestinely or she had not submitted to the jurisdiction of the US Court or the US Court had no jurisdiction. Once a competent Court has passed an order in respect of return or exchange of articles including dowry articles, no offence under Section 406 IPC can be tried for the same articles in India.”

NRI spouses with GCs are required to obey US laws, implicitly acceding to US jurisdiction. It is a responsibility, like paying taxes in the US, that they are REQUIRED to fulfil. This is an agreement they are signing when accepting the green card. These women may want to think twice before filing a case against their hubbies in India after getting their green cards. They may be faced with a contempt of court charges in the US if they try to challenge the divorce judgment in India after losing the case here.

Here is the text of the responsibilities:

  • You are required to obey all of the laws of the United States, the States, and localities.
  • You are required to file your income tax returns and report your income to the US Internal Revenue Service and State IRS.
  • You are expected to support the democratic form of government and cannot attempt to change the government through illegal means.
  • If you are a male, age 18 through 25, you are required to register with the Selective Service.

Tricks Played On NRIs TO Settle Divorce Cases

Here are pdfs of news items that detail the tricks that will be played on NRIs to settle marital disputes. In all cases, the parents/siblings and relatives will be arrested and held until the NRI or his family coughs up the cash. Every agency/person involved in “settling” the dispute allegedly gets a cut of the settlement. The articles posted below are old news items, but this is the common pattern followed in almost all cases.

NRIs are being painted as crooks and monsters who marry innocent girls and dump them. The reality and statistics speak otherwise. The reality is that like most things, there are a few cads who do these things, but they represent a minuscule minority and are not representative of the true picture. More NRIs are being take for a ride than the other way round. NRIs are picked on as they have no real voice in India and the picture of an abandoned bride creates an emotional response that is used by the radical Indian feminists to advance their agenda.

Judgments On NRI Cases By The Courts In India

I thank Ms Girija Vyas for this document. I extracted this information from the MOIA document she sponsored in a misdirected zeal to paint all NRIs men with marital issues as crooks, liars and cheats.

I thought, I’d perform a public service by sparing the public from the vitriol and the smug faces of netas, contained in this otherwise excellent document, by extracting and presenting the excellent parts.

Here is the document: Judgments On NRI Cases By The Courts In India(pdf)

Read this judgment of Justice Shiv Narain Dhingra: Justice Dhingra Quashes An NRI 498A Case

Read this judgment as well:   Delhi HC: Beniwal Vs Beniwal 1989

Also read this news. The Supreme Court is looking into the issue of women who live abroad, fight their divorce/custody battles abroad, lose their cases, land in India and file 498A or whatever against their husbands.

Clarification On NRI Divorces

I am revisiting an old case, the YN Rao vs Venkatalaxmi, NRI divorce case. The crux of the matter is that the Supreme Court has stated, according to the article in TOI given below, that a foreign court has no authority to dissolve a marriage under the Hindu Marriage Act, IF, the person who filed the case in the foreign court is not domiciled (a permanent legal residence) in the jurisdiction of the foreign court.

Here is the link to the YN Rao Vs Venkatalaxmi judgment

Please read this article to understand what the court meant.

Finally read this post to understand the reality of broken NRI marriages and Indian court judgments

Some Interesting Stats On Arrests Of Women

In 1930, the British govt arrested 17,000 women for their involvement in the Dandi Yatra (Salt March). During 1937 to 1947 (10 Years), they arrested 5,000 women involved in the freedom struggle. From 2004 to 2006, the govt of India arrested 90,000 women of all ages under 498A. On the average, 27,000 women per year are being arrested under this flawed law. These are stats from the NCRB.

The family of the writer was tortured by the Indian Police in an attempt to extort over a $100,000 by holding them in custody for over a week. The police, in cahoots with the magistrate and the PP, did this due to the ridiculous allegations made in a 498A case by his embittered ex-wife. She filed the case years after he and his family had last seen her. Thousands of 498A cases are filed each year in India by women seeking to wreak vengeance on their husbands and in-laws. Enormous sums are extorted from intimidated families implicated in these cases by corrupt Indian police officers and elements of the Indian judiciary. The author and his family haven't bribed any public official nor have they given in to the extortion. This blog aims to raise awareness of due process in India.
