Maintenance Laws

Maintenance laws in India primarily pertain to providing financial support to a spouse, children, or dependent parents when they are unable to maintain themselves. Maintenance in law is defined as the amount which is paid to the dependent wife, child, or parents to maintain themselves.

Maintenance is a right to get necessities which are reasonable from another. It has been held in various cases that maintenance includes not only food, clothes and residence, but also the things necessary for the comfort and status in which the person entitled is reasonably expected to live.

Maintenance laws are governed by various statutes such as The Hindu Adoption and Maintenance Act,1956, The Hindu Marriage Act,1955, The Special Marriage Act,1954, The Code of Criminal Procedure,1973, and The Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act,2005.
