Questions Answered by Advocate Ravi Shankar

Q: Father's property seperation - what is the Share for a daughter

I am daughter of my father. My father has 3 sons(1 not alive) and 2 daughters. My father owned a house and he is not alive and no will for that house. My younger brother is living in that home. Now he wants that home in his name. The property worth is about 3-4 Lakhs. I want to know, what is my share as a daughter in the property.

Advocate Ravi Shankar answered
Your father has expired intestate. The house is in his name. But he is no more. In such case, the surviving legal heirs of your father will have equal share. You say that one son is not alive. If he died unmarried, then the property will be divided in 3 equal shares. If he was married then his legal heir will get one share. Then in such case, the share will be 4 equal shares.

If you have decided to divorce, try for mutual consent. As it is, your wife is wanting divorce. So, file along with her after confirming her maintenance requirement. If you accept for divorce in the existing petition, the divorce order will comprise of all the allegations that are available in the petition filed by your wife. That order will be detrimental for your next step in your life. For further details, Contact me thro
