A married woman can demand maintenance from her husband but has no legal right to demand anything from her father-in-law. Very specific guidelines are laid down by the Hon. Supreme Court for such matters.

It is explicitly mentioned in the Law itself that a wife has claim ONLY on the assets of her husband. You may refer the judgment of the Hon. Supreme Court of 04/11/2020 for rights and duties of the couple in their divorce matter.
