i m fighting divorce case. wife has already filed a case for share in property. i m also having a 2.5 years son living with wife. i m also salaried person. having 2-3 properties in metro. just to save from tax, i put wife's name as coowner in one of the property, altho' she didnt pay anythng. but she is claiming that she gave me 2 lakhs in cash during purchase the property.

During the life time of the husand wife cannot calim share in the husband's property, but if son/daughter calimed their share in the ancestral property then one share should alloted to wife.  The new act is not yet come into force.

If your wife is contgributed the amount to purchase the property then she must disclose her source of income , she can not say blindly I have also contributed .  If she proved she is entittle for half share in the property.


In my similar case, Wife is joint owner of the property but she has never paid any of the EMIs till date since 2006 or any of the down payments. The loan is till 2020. All the EMIs have been paid from my salary account but which is joint account. She had never deposited her salary in this account in the last 15 years.

- Can she claim 50% ownership in this property ?

- What rights does she have on this property ?

- WHat legal steps can I take to secure this propoerty in my name.

It is no ground for divorce.




It is just a proposed bill, not even a bill now. So don't fret, highly unlikely such bill would be passed.
