Yes, you and your daughter both are entitled to get monthly maintenance from your husband. You may apply for maintenance either under the Hindu Marriage Act or under Section 125 of the Criminal Procedure Code.

You may file a case for maintenance against your husband in the court of law. The court may order him for paying the maintenance. At the same time, it is also suggested to sort out differences amicably and lead a happy life.

File dv against your husband and then seek maintenance under the PWDV Act for yourself as well as your minor child. Though considering both sides income affidavit the claim will be adjudicated, though maintenance will be awarded by the court for the minor, if wife claim for maintenance is denied.
