Maintenance for parents and wife

Dear sir,

kindly guide in the matter if the maintenance case is filed by the parents and wife.

since maintenance to parents  has to be finalised within 90 days whereas in case of crpc 125 filed by wife there is no time limit.

so it is presumed that maintenance is firstly awarded to old parents. is ther will be any effect in case of wife.will family court took into account  the maintenance passed by the tribunal in favour of old parents and thus family court will award less maintenance as source of the income of the son is fixed and he has to pay maintenance to both parents and wife.

what will be modelity in deciding the case by family court for wife under crpc 125.

kindly guide in the matter

It has to become 1/3. U can try contesting that the parents application is collusive to frustrate the claims of the wife.


If you have sufficient income to maintain your wife and parents the award will be granted to all irrespective of the time bound according to your standard of living
