My huband died in 1975.i have a daughter in that marriage. Later i re-married and i am presently living with my re-married husband. my first husband died intestate. While he died, his mother was alive. She died in the year 1994. she has 4 sons. my first husbands property is not yet divided. Hindu marriage act 1955 has been amended for Kerala in 2016. Now i hear that the share inherited by my first husbands mother from her pre-deceased son will go to me and my daughter only on her death and not to her other sons. Since the law came into effect in 2016 only and since my first mother in law died in 1994, which law will be applicable? Will my first mother in law and her other sons( apart from my first husband who is also her son) get a share in my husbands property or am I and my daughter are the sole legal heirs of my first husbands property?
i was not taking about Hindu Marriage Act. It is the Hindu Succession Act, 1956 with an amendment in Secti0n 15 for Kerala State. The amendment came in October 21 2016
my first husband expired in 1975. and i had to remarry in 1977. since at time of my first husbands death my mother was alive and the previous law was applicable, i think her other sons will get a share in the property even though it is still not dividied. Since i remarried will i have to forefeit my right to the property? what will be my daughters( in frist husband) and my share in the property?
