High Court Chandigarh Protection in Love Marriage

Nidhi (name change) was recently married to her love, Rohit (name change) after a long tenure of 4 years of dating and companionship. Like all other couples in big cities, they took time and then plunged into marriage. Remember there are no guarantee in today's world. Be it marriage .

Nidhi and Rohit hails from same village but from different castes. Hence the real issue erupted eventually after  marriage; family of girl after the life of boy and boy's family. Death threats, registration of a false case, causing bodily injuries, will not let the couple survive any where etc etc .

Believe me, it's a tense and dreadful situation. For a newly married spouse it is a nerve wrecking task and you need only right protection lawyers & advocates of High Court Chandigarh who can hear your fears patiently and suggest the right legal recourse, genuinely.

Remember not to confuse court marriage with protection petition from high court. Read my post to know the difference here- Court Marriage and Marriages in Chandigarh

Getting protection order from Punjab & Haryana High Court is not that easy unless you fulfill the legal requisites for marriage viz age, free will and ceremony. All three are important for court to make out a valid legal marriage in the eyes of law and then possibly court can grant directions to police authorities not to harass, torture or implicate them in false matters. Thus restoring peace and harmony. Even parents are issued notices not to interfere in newly wed life of both partners.
