You and yous son can claim maintenance from the father of your son. You can file maintenance petition under section 125 Cr. P.C. and also under the provisions of DV Act. the amount of maintenance is decided by the Court by keeping in view the income of the husband, his other liabilities, age of the child etc. fi he is earning Rs. 50,000/- per month and you can prove that in the Court, you may get Rs.15,000-20,000 per month. Rest all depends on the wisdom of the Court.
