Dear Esteemed Counsels,
Could you please advise on Indian Law - if it directs any of legally separated parents to pay for maintenance of a child who is 18 years old or more? If so, could you please guide on the details?
I was earlier told by my advocate that after 18 years of age a child is considered an adult and hence there is no legal obligation to pay/take care of adult's maintenance.
However, now the advocate has turned around and says - until the adult is earning maintenance has to be paid and even education fees?? Can't the adult son go for Educational Loan? What if the adult does not want to work??
Appreciate your advice.
