My grandmother is an 80 year old lady. Her husband was an ex-service man expired long time ago. she draws about Rs.6,800/- as persion everymonth, out of which she had to spend Rs.4,000/- on house rent and additionally the electricity, water and other charges. I am her daughter's son and I am paying some money to my grandmother every month so that she could buy some food and meet other expenses. My grandmother now lives in visakhapatnam.
My grandmother has a son and he abandoned her. Her son is very rich and recently purchased 1 crore worth House in Tamilnadu and he also has some property in visakhapatnam.
Can my grandmother file a case against her son by Maintenance and Welfare of Parents and Senior Citizens Act, 2007. Can my grandmother get some money from her Son every month as maintenance if she approachs the Court.
In such case whom should my Grandmother approach? What are the charges involved. My grandmother isn't rich to hire a private lawyer.
Please advise. Thanks in advance.
