  • ansGoing by the brief facts of your case, you can claim maintenance for yourself and your daughters from your husband which is specifically provided under Section 18 of the Hindu Adoptions and Maintenance Act, 1956, where in you are entitled to maintenance during your life time from your husband. Also, as your husband has asked you to leave your marital home and refused to give you monthly expenditure you have the option of filing a case of domestic violence against your husband under the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005.
    Apart from the above you can also file for restitution of conjugal rights under Section 9 of the Hindu Marriage act, 1955, if your husband has abandoned you and has started residing separately.
