• Share of illegal wife or his illegal children

Hello Sir,

My father is no more and was expired few years back and I am the only daughter(unmarried) of my mother. Also, my father had kept a keep/illegal wife and she has two sons & 2 daughters, out of which one girl has got married. Myself and my mother lives with grandmother & grandfather since starting(after getting married). My grandmother & grandfather also expired and they have one self constructed owned house in the form of their property in which there is a share/part for my father and his two brothers & 1 sister. So, I would like to know that, will there be any chance of claiming this property by my father's illegal wife or his illegal children?

Hi, after the death of your father illegitimate sons and daughters has right over the  property of your father not during his life time.

i presume your father died intestate ie without any will . in such  a case the following would be legal heirs your mother , you and 5 children of his mistress . in other words you will have 1/7th share in your father property .

If the house was constructed by your grand father out of his own earnings then it qualifies in law to be his self purchased property. Now if your grand father died without making a will then his property will vest equally in his children. To put it succinctly, this property belonged equally to your father, his two brothers and sister. After the death of your father it belongs equally to your father's siblings and you, your mother, your father's mistress and children of mistress as a whole.
