Legal Question in Family Law in Pakistan

My sister is applying for Khula by Mutual Consent as her husband is not bearing the responsibilities. Also, he is violent in nature and mistreated/misbehaved my sister. I want to ask about childís (minor) maintenance limit applied to claim for the baby girl, who is 2 months old and not on the motherís feed. In addition, my sister is with us for more than 10 months and there is no financial support for her (food, cloth, medication etc.) by her husband. We have endured all expenses for the childís birth including all necessities (food, hospitalization and medications).

Also, what we can do if he is not bearing financial support and says that ďI have no money to give you, I am jobless and canít bear the responsibilitiesĒ.

What law says, if both parties donít want to keep child (It is very awful to say but I want to know all the corners of this case).
