Dear Sir,

It works on the following formula:




Dear Madam,


My answers as follows.


1)what is the max alimony I can claim from him?


Ans: The quantum of maintence must be based of SC judgment which says 25% of salary must be maintenance. Thus it must be calculated as follows

Salary Rs.2 lakhs per month

25% comes to Rs.50,000 multiplied by 12 Months = Rs.6 lakhs  per year.


If you live for another 20 years it comes to Rs.6 lakhs multiplied by 20 = Rs. 1crore 20 lakhs.

You get total compensation of Rs.1 Crore Rs.20 lakhs.


2)can I ask for a property?


Ans: You have no right over property but its notional income may be added to the salary .
