if your father dies without a will then you would be a legal heir to said property .

kindly keep in mind this is a self acquired property of your father and after his death ,if there is no will then your mother and you will get equal share,but if there is a will and after his death most probably the property will go to your mother and after her death then it will come to you ,so kindly keep patience for a better future for your self and your daughter

Irrespective of the status of a woman, whether she is unmarried, married, widowed, divorced, a woman can not claim rights over the property of her father if the property is her father's self-acquired property except when her father has died intestate. If he has left a WILL, then the property would devolve as per the contents of the WILL.  Better thing for you is to discuss with him and pursue him to retain the property.

If the property is your father's self purchased property then he can sell it at his sweet will without any restriction. You have no rights whatsoever in it.

The only scenario in which you can get this property is if your father makes a will in your favour, or does not make a will at all.

You are a divorced woman. Did you not sue your husband for maintenance of yourself and your child? On what terms was divorce finalised? You may sue your ex-husband for financial support for yourself and your child.

The only right which your mother has is the right to stay in her matrimonial house. If she is thrown out of house then she may seek enforcement of right to reside in matrimonial house by moving to court. Excepting this right, she has no other right in your father's self purchased property.
