Actually there is no legal provision to disown a son. But it can be done by giving notice to the world that the parents are no longer keeping any relation with their son.  In matrimonial cases it may work in sometimes, such as where a daughter-in-law files a 498A case on the husband and his parents,  the act of  disowning the son may be used to show that the parents have not been keeping any relations with the son, so how they could have illtreated the daughter in law or how they could have instigated him to ill treat her.. however, how much it will help, all depends upon facts and circumstances of every case and when that act of disowning was done. Also if the parents claim to have disowned their son, then the son is estopped from saying that he has to support his parents which is a usual defence of a man to reduce the quantum of maintainance...

YOur parents should file a petition under Senior Citizens Act, 2007 that you have not been taking care of them and whatever means of income they have are insufficient for them to maintain themselves.  If father is a pensioner, means of income adequate to sustain family, you can at least save your mother. But you see, as the saying goes, you should always approach the court with clean hands.

Whether disowned by parents in case of death of son will help from wrong litigation by daughter in law .
