Thank you for posting your question.

Your right to get maintenance and alimony is absolute and does not depend upon your in-laws disowning your husband. You may file an application under section 125 Cr.P.C. and Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005 to obtain maintenance and compensation from your husband for you as well as your son.

In addition to this, your son's right in the ancestral property of his father sustains, hence your your son cannot be ousted of his right in the ancestral property simply by his father getting disowned.

So, the right course of action for you is to file appropriate applications under the above mentioned Acts and start getting maintenance. Further, in case your in-laws are trying to dispose of the ancestral property(ies), then you may file a civil suit on behalf of your son to protect his rights.

You have taken a right step in filing a RCR petition under section 9 of HMA. You also file an application in the same proceeding to claim interim maintenance for you and your son. You can also file a petition under section 125 of CR.PC  for maintenance. Claim of your son as advised by Adv. Nishant Bora shall depend upon whether the property in the name of your FIL is ancestral or self acquired. In the amended HMA the grand son does not get a right into the property of his grandfather on his birth.
