"hindu family: joint property + divorce"


I have a friend who has brought joint property along with his wife.  Detail of contribution is as follows:

1) Loan amount   :  50%

2) Husband mother contribution(pension and savings)  :  20%

3) Husband contribution(Salary) : 25%

4)  Wife contribution via salary: 5%.

All transaction are white transcation via cheque and DD.


Property is jointly registered by husband and wife (with No % percentage ownership share documented in sale deed).  Also, husband and wife are co-applicant of loan. But only husband is paying EMI alone.

My friend and his wife are planning to divorce, I would like to know what are claims of his wife,

1) Does his wife will get only 5% share ?

2). Does his mother(husband) also can make claim on property?

As per the sale deed your friend's wife has got 50% of right over the property.  But the loan amount shall be paid by his wife is only 5% as per your stated facts.

My friend WIFE is NOT paying any EMI. 5% is her contribution towards principal payment.
