Wife claim alimony for daughter after proceedings of mutual divorce

04-May-2023 (In Divorce Law)
My wife agreed to go for a mutual divorce with out any claim. Accordingly I am putting a clause in the mutual petition that she is not asking for any alimony. However, we have a daughter.. And I am afraid, later she may again raise this issue and ask for alimony for our daughter.. Can she ask for alimony for our daughter even after divorce by mutual consent and no claim of alimony at the time of signing.

Yes after mutual divorce the daughter has right to claim maintenance from her father through her divorce does not waive the right of claiming maintenance from his/her parents.Any clause in the mutual divorce that you will not pay any maintenance to ur daughter after mutual divorce shall not prevent ur daughter to claim maintenance.

She can claim maintenance for your daughter until the daughter attains the age of majority i.e. 18 years. After that she cannot claim maintainence, but it is your duty to maintain your child until she attains majority. Divorce is between husband and wife...there is no terms and conditions regarding children
