A person has a right to make a WILL of his self acquired properties and distribute it as per his wishes.
Daughter-in-law, with or without a child, can not claim share in self acquired property of her father-in-law AGAINST his wishes.

Dear LCI Querist @ Mr. Rahul,

Vashistaji must have shared the said Bombay HC verdict with you and you can benfit from IT.
Yours is interesting query.
Pls share the impact of Bombay HC verdict and outcome of your matter in this thread...

1. TECHNICALLY, your Son can claim his rights over his deceased Grand-Father's property, PROVIDED:
a) Your Son, is the only legal heir (Class-I),
b) You have another legitimate WILL of the latest date,
c) You can prove that your Son's Grand Father, was mentally unfit, while preparing will.
d) other factors ....

2. You as a Daughter-in-Law, DO NOT derive legal rights over your Father-in-Law's property. HOWEVER, IF the FIL had duly transferred the property in your Husbands name, via any intrument (including a Will), THEN you would have been entitled to your Husbands property.

Keep Smiling .... Hemant Agarwal
