Do you have in the form of purchase receipts, etc any proof of the fact that jewellery taken by your sister actually belonged to your mother? If there is no such proof then taking recourse to law will be a wastage of time and money as you will not be able to prove anything in court.

you are not going to wear those expensive sarees and jewellery . if she has taken it with your father consent forget it .you can ask your sister when you meet her to give some jewllery belonging to your mother as a momento .

if your father makes a will bequeathing his entire property to your sister then you wont get any share . only if he dies without a will would you get 50%share in property

dont make any claim for jewellery . if you do so now you would antagonise your father and he will bequeath entire property to your sister only

Your claim for jewellery will not stand its ground in a court of law as your sister will never accept that she took your deceased mother's jewellery. So do not file a case for jewellery.

Neither your nor your son will have any share in the property of your father if he wills it entirely to your sister. Only in the event of your father dying without a will you and your children will have a share therein.

Your wife may file a police complaint for her jewellery which has now gone missing. Do not name your sister unless you have insurmountable evidence of her misappropriating it.
