- My husband’s father has a property and gets enough rent to maintain his family. Husband’s mother is a retired government servant and gets a monthly pension. Husband’s brother is an engineer. His wife is also working. Husband’s sister is a doctor and married. I am not employed and I and my son are completely dependent on my husband. Now my husband is planning to purchase a property. I have a one year old son. I will appreciate if you could answer the following questions: (1) What will be my share and my son’s share in the property? Also let me know what will be the share of my in-laws (husband’s parents, sister and brother). This property will be purchased by my husband with his own earnings? (2) What will be my share and my son’s share if my husband includes my name also in the property along with his name? What will be my share and my son’s share if he does not include my name in the property documents? (3) What will be my share, my son’s share and his family’s share (parents, one brother and one sister) in case of husband’s death? Will there be any difference in my share if my name is included in the property?

- I have a question that a brother and sister both have passed away. Their parents have left behind two properties in India. One full property and other has only ground floor given to them as a part from their share as waqaf-ul-aulad. (Other first floor and second floor went to other cousins from their mother side.) Brother has a son and four daughters. And sister has two sons. What shares exactly be given to all children of both brother and sister when that will be sold, as both have passed away.
