Daughter in Law demanding Father's in law property

(Querist) 01 September 2017 This query is : Resolved 
Daughter in law is demanding for father's in law self owned property after her husband died(son). Does she have the right to the father's in law property?
Please explain in layman language. Thank you.
Rajendra K Goyal (Expert) 01 September 2017
She has no right in the self acquired property of father in law during his life time. She can claim a share from her husband's share if father in law expire intestate.
Devraj Chauhan (Querist) 01 September 2017
And can she ask for the maintenance? Because her father is already earning and can maintain her expenses.
Guest (Expert) 01 September 2017
She can claim only after the death of her father-in-law, not during his life time.
Devraj Chauhan (Querist) 01 September 2017
Thank you.
Guest (Expert) 01 September 2017
About maintenance, you have not mentioned whether she is earning any income or under what circumstances she wants to claim maintenance from her father-in-law?
Devraj Chauhan (Querist) 01 September 2017
Thank you.
Devraj Chauhan (Querist) 01 September 2017
She's not earning but did her graduation
Devraj Chauhan (Querist) 01 September 2017
And doing post graduation. Her father tum her home back.
Guest (Expert) 01 September 2017
Please re-read my question and provide complete information as per my question, i.e, why/under what circumstances she wants maintenance from her father in law?
.
Devraj Chauhan (Querist) 01 September 2017
Her father took her back home
Guest (Expert) 01 September 2017
If her father has taken her to his home, merely on that ground she cannot claim any maintenance from her father-in-law.
Devraj Chauhan (Querist) 01 September 2017
Sorry no information in that . They are planning to file a case against my parents. So, checking all the possible reasons. Sorry

It is believed that all are Hindu.
Confirm!
Kumar Doab (Expert) 01 September 2017
Daughter in law has NO forced share in self acquired property of Father in law.

Hope by self owned you mean self acquired.
Devraj Chauhan (Querist) 01 September 2017
Yes, we all are Hindu. Yes, self owned means self acquired.
Kumar Doab (Expert) 01 September 2017
NO one has any forced share in self acquired property of Hindu male.
Sudhir Kumar, Advocate (Expert) 02 September 2017
You have fist set only a question paper.

Still members tired to help you. After some time you introduced the fact that it pertains to your family.

It may be better if you give full facts of the case.

You have not stated when / how her husband died.
You have not stated what he was doing.
You have not stated whether any service or insurance benefits were accrued and taken by whom invested where.

Take notice that no legal right of any woman is lost, merely if she had gone to parental home (which generally widows are forced to do to avoid maltreatment).
Kumar Doab (Expert) 02 September 2017
If she was maltreated and has not been given her share from estate of her husband then she has right to proceed against anyone and everyone that has infringed her rights.

Agreed that mere instance of her father having taken her from matrimonial home to parental home does not limit or end her rights.
Rajendra K Goyal (Expert) 02 September 2017
Generally, daughter in law is not entitled for maintenance from father in law, she is entitled to take income from her husband's estate or any other benefit if he was in employment.etc.
R.K Nanda (Expert) 02 September 2017
nothing more to add.
Kumar Doab (Expert) 02 September 2017
The DIL can study.
She has a future staring at her.

Who is paying for her FEE, expenses etc!

Her being graduate is of what consequence in the matter as per your own understanding!
Kumar Doab (Expert) 02 September 2017
If you wish you may post the basis of your post: 'Because her father is already earning and can maintain her expenses.'
Guest (Expert) 02 September 2017
What kind of case they are planning against your parents? Facts must be clear.
Ms.Usha Kapoor (Expert) 23 June 2018
Agree with RK Goel and Kumar Doab.
Kumar Doab (Expert) 23 June 2018
Thanks for agreeing Ms. Usha Kapoor..
