The related Court has made an order for maintenance against your husband not against your father-in-law. Therefore legally the liability of payment of maintenance falls upon your husband.
if your father-in-law has given an undertaking before the related Court that he will pay the maintenance amount on behalf of his son as awarded by the Court; then no problem is there.
Maintenance amount should be paid to you according to Court order; doesn't matter who is depositig the amount son or father.
