  1. the person who is dead his wife & then their children the daughter won’t get anything because she is married but i think the wife & son’s sure will get the property:)


  2. Are you in the United States? I think you’re saying that the dead person is divorced from the mother of his children? If that is the case, his heirs are his children who will share the inheritance equally.


  3. Read ‘The Hindu Succession Act, 1956’.

    On the death of a intestate Hindu male his property divolves on his Class1 heirs.

    Class1 heirs – Wife/s, Sons, Daughters & Mother.
