A father filed an application in the Bombay High Court for not paying alimony to his daughter. The reason was posting glossy ie good photos on Instagram. But in this case, the High Court gave a verdict in favor of the daughter. The Bombay High Court has observed that flashy pictures on social media do not always reflect the truth.

The court’s remarks came after the father submitted evidence that his daughter is a model, earning around Rs 72-80 lakh every year and this is also reflected in her social media profiles and photos.

The Bench of Justice Bharati Dangre agreed with the view of the Family Court that photographs on Instagram/social media are not sufficient to prove that the girl is independent and has sufficient income. Let us tell you that the court has given this decision in the case of Anil Chandravadan vs State of Maharashtra.

what is alimony law

In this regard, Advocate Dilip Kumar says that alimony decisions are given under Section-24, 25 and 26 of the Hindu Marriage Act. In this decision, the financial condition of the father of the child and other factors i.e. assets are also taken into account.

  • The court may reconsider the order of such maintenance made or awarded under section 25(2). Depending on the circumstances, the court may increase, decrease or cancel the alimony amount.
  • In some cases alimony can be modified and canceled.
  • According to section 26, the court can make any provisional order having regard to the wishes of the children.
  • According to the existing law (Section 125 CrPC), the child is entitled to maintenance, whether the child is legal or illegitimate, in both the cases. Legal experts say that in such a case, the person who proves to be the biological father, the child will have the right in his ancestral property, but the child will not have the right in the father’s own acquired property.
  • When it is proved that a person is the biological father of such a person, the son/daughter gets all the rights and can claim the ancestral property.
  • Also, he can also demand maintenance till he gets his share in that property.
