Also please let me know, can I submit printed/ hand-written & signed NOC for the case closure, by all witnesses to the case, so that I can get the work done faster if they cannot be physically present for the same ? Finally, reason i am asking this is because husband's lawyer suggested to go to Ahmedabad and appoint 2 seperate lawyers for each party and get it resolved from there. total fees were stated as 45,000/-. i am not willing to go for this procedure as i don't have that much money. What is the best way to resolve the case without too much hassle and emotional hurt ? I have been traumatised by the whole incident and scarred for life and need a quick solution to this problem and hence good life for me and my son.
- Compoundable Offences are of less serious nature and can be mutually settled between the parties without prior permission of the Court. These are offences like adultery, causing hurt, defamation, criminal trespass etc.
- For Non-Compoundable offences, Court permission is required before the parties can decide to mutually settle the matter among themselves. Examples of such offences are theft, criminal breach of trust, voluntarily causing grievous hurt, dishonest misappropriation of property etc.
