Father is bound to pay maintenance irrespective of mother's income

If minor children reside with their mother and she has good resources to maintain them, that does not end the liability of father to maintain his children. A father is liable to maintain his male child until the age of 18 years. Similarly he is liable to maintain his female children until she gets married.

The liability of father cannot end if the mother of children has good job or other source of income to maintain the children. The father can only be relieved from such liability if the mother of children refuse to take any maintenance from father for any reasons.

The maintenance of minors include their living expenses, study expenses, food expenses and other miscellaneous expenses. They differ from person to person in different circumstances. That is why the Guardian Courts have discretionary powers to determine the maintenance allowance of minors when their jurisdiction is invoked in such like matters.
