Before coming to your query and answer of it, first of all let me clarify few facts. 1) Who are the heirs of your father in law? Is there only two sisters or else also? 2) Are you belongs to Hindu Family or under any other cast? 3) Between whom you want to share the property of your father in law? 4) Whether you want to divide your property as it is or divide after selling it?
I will definitely help you but before giving proper consultation these facts is required to know.

Respected sir/ ma'am,
As a matter of right your sister in law in entitled to get a share from her father's property. She is lawfully guarded and entitled to get share in her father's property. However, for more clarity please tell that whether your father in law has executed a will or has died intestate?
