You are not able to frame your question in the right way. Having said that whether you earn on your own or through someone, it is your self earned money or property. So no one can stake a claim against your property which your are going to earn in future. However, if your daughter is minor, she has every right to claim maintenance against you and you are duty bound to support her till the time of her marriage.

There is no necessity to disown your daughter. Your daughter cannot make any claim against your property or your earnings. Your daughter is 25 years old, there is no legal obligation that you have to support her in any way. Is she interfering in your present life now? In what way? There is no way that she can disturb your new life & wife. In case you need any further advice or assistance, kindly contact me.
