Judgments on Family Arrangement

Tuesday, September 20, 2011
Family Arrangement

Family Arrangement — When a Mohammedan becomes a party to a family arrangement, does it also entail that he gives up his right of spes successionis — Held, yes.

Family Arrangement

Family Arrangement — A family arrangement would necessarily mean a decision arrived at jointly by the members of a family and not between two individuals belonging to the family.

Family Arrangement

Family Arrangement — When each of his children left the family house, the deceased used to get them to execute Deeds of Relinquishment, whereby, on the receipt of some consideration, each of them relinquished their respective claim to the properties belonging to the deceased — Held, methodology resorted to by the deceased cannot be strictly said to be a family arrangement — However, notwithstanding the above, the doctrine of estoppel will be attracted so as to prevent the childrens from receiving an advantage for giving up their rights and yet claiming the same right subsequently — Evidence Act, 1872, Section 155.
