The aggrieved person can claim maintenance from either or both of his sons. A special law has been enacted called Maintenance and Welfare of Parents and Senior Citizens Act 2007 which provides inexpensive and speedy procedure to claim monthly maintenance for parents and senior citizens above 60 years of age.
The aggrieved person will have to file an application before the Tribunal constituted under the Act claiming monthly maintenance from his sons. The application can be filed in the district where he resides or last resided, or in the district where the children reside. After hearing both the parties and taking into consideration all the facts of the case like requirements of the senior citizen, income of the sons etc., the Tribunal can award maximum amount of Rs.10,000/- by way of monthly maintenance.

The said aggrieved person if a Hindu, also has the option of filing a case for maintenance under section 20 of the Hindu Adoption and Maintenance Act 1956.

Another option is to file for maintenance under section 125 of Code of Criminal Procedure 1973 before a Magistrate of First Class situated in the jurisdiction where he lives.
