Hello, my mother has passed away, and my father got married again. The second wife wants to share the property. She has no children. Can she claim a share in my father’s property?
After the amendment Act of 2005, according to Hindu Law by virtue of section 6, the property of Hindu male dying intestate devolves upon his heirs in Class-I category, which includes Sons, Daughters, Widows, mother etc. Hence, in your case, your father’s children from your first wife, your father’s second wife and his mother, if alive, will be entitled to share in your father’s property.
