India has announced a rebuttable presumption that any child support payments made by an ex-spouse must be paid by the ex-husband, and there are no legal restrictions on that.
The Government said that while it has not ruled out the possibility that such a scenario could occur in the future, it would be better to defer the payment of the support until a child was born.
This is the first time a country has announced such a move in the 21st century.
The announcement comes in the context of a controversy that erupted over the last few months in the state of Gujarat, where many parents have taken to social media to vent their anger about child support.
A petition launched on the government website on August 24 by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) claimed that the ex had been abusing his ex-wife for decades, and that the woman’s children were being neglected by her ex-husband.
The petition claimed that, in the interim, the ex and his wife had taken their children to various hospitals for medical treatment.
The government, however, has denied the allegations.
The Gujarat government, on the other hand, said that the state has no official policy on child support and that such cases should be taken up by courts.
“The state is not in favour of any change in child support guidelines or any legislation, which could create any problems,” a spokesperson for the state government told The Times Of India.
“There are no such laws or guidelines in place in Gujarat.
Child support can be awarded to the mother even after a divorce.”
The government said that a number of measures have been implemented to try and alleviate the distress caused by the case.
The state has increased the support given to the ex husband from Rs. 10,000 per month to Rs. 15,000, and also raised the age at which support is to be paid from 15 to 20.
However, the state said that it is not seeking to overturn the court order.
The decision to waive the child support payment will help the ex pay for the expenses of his children’s education, healthcare, and other basic needs.
The BJP government also said that, if the ex pays the child maintenance, it will take into account the state’s income and expenditure.
The new policy also requires the ex to provide proof of employment for the children and provide proof that they have been employed in a job for two years.
“It is clear that the government is trying to solve a problem, and not solve a human problem,” said Gopal Baglay, general secretary of the All India Federation of Child Support Abusers and Domestic Violence Alleviation Committees (AFCAB).
“The government has no right to ask ex-wives to pay child support in the first place.
This policy does not come in the interest of women or child support victims,” Baglay said.
The Indian Supreme Court last month struck down a previous ban on child maintenance payments.
In December 2015, the court ruled that such payments were permissible in some circumstances, such as if there was a child support arrearage or if the child was in a dependent or care home.
The Supreme Court also noted that child support was a “basic right” for both parents, and said the state should consider the welfare of the child and the welfare and development of the parents in determining the payment.
“In the event that the husband is unable to pay, the children can receive child support at the same time.
The children can then be taken care of by the parents,” said the Supreme Court order.
