• Share in husband's property

My husband is a multimillionaire....he has ditched me and was blackmailing for giving divorce..I have a minor son......I filed 498A against him so he came to negotiation...Now he is ready to give me only 45lacs and in return he wants me to withdraw the case an also give it to him in writing that I and my son dont have any share in his multimillion ancestral property.Should I compromise? Can Indian hindu law provide me my and my son's share in his inherited property?

You and your son both have rights in his properties and assets. so dont settle for peanuts .You can file case under DV Act for claiming your  share in residence/alternative accommodation,compensation for domestic violence,harassment etc,maintenance for self and your son and return of your jewellery,streedhan etc. then he will come to your terms for settlement.Please feel free to call for any clarification.

1. You have no right on his property, be it self acquired or ancestral,

2. However, your son is having share on his ancestral property,

3. Rs.45 Lakhs is also huge amount. Make sure that you dont loose the bird in your hand for chasing birds in the bush,

4. You shall have to take decision based on ground reality.

Since your husband has inherited ancestral property, your son will have a share in that. You can not have a right in your husband's Self-acquired property or ancestral. I hope it would be wise for you to accept the offer of Rs.45 Lakhs or else it is unlikely that you would get such an offer again.
