in general, wife may get maintainance only as per the financial status of the husband.

Still my reply will be the same.. As far as child is concerned, then if it is in the custody of the wife then, the father will have to pay maintainance for the child but having a child does not give any right to the wife over husband's bank balance or his self acquired property.

50% share in husband property that law is in pipe line but has not been enacted till date , so as of now old family law prevail .

and as per old family law, ans to ur both question is no.

well she can claim right of residence under DV Act but not share in property.(if in property her name is not mention)
