• Do kids of divorced parents have share in ancestral property

Dear Advocate

I want to know that do any kid of divorced couple has a share on ancestral property from father's side when he/she already got property from his/her father before his death.

If yes, then what is the clause and how I can get my share.

Also please let me know how I can create bigger share?

The rights of a child in ancestral property do not cease to exist after the legal separation of his parents. Inheriting the property of his/her father prior to his death also does not disqualify him/her from claiming his share in the ancestral property. 

The share can be culled out by filing a case for partition in court.

Please elaborate regarding ancestral property.  Is it your grand father's or great grand father's property which you are referring to as ancestral property.  Based on your reply, the correct status of your question can be answered.
