Woman ordered to pay maintenance to children

Kurunegala Chief Magistrate Sampath Hewawasam recently ordered a senior female officer attached to the Irrigation Department, a respondent in a maintenance case, to make monthly interim payments valued at Rs.6,000 to her two children living under the care of her husband, whom she had deserted.

A senior lawyer appearing for the applicant told court that it was a rare case since it was the female spouse who usually claims maintenance from her husband who had deserted the family.
