First wife and children of first and second wife have equal share and rights in the properties left by man.

The second wife when the first wife is not divorced, so the 2nd wife has no right over the property. Hence the first wife, all children (including the children born through the 2nd wife) have equal shares on the property.

1. ALL the legitimate & illegitimate children of Deceased and his legally wedded First wife are entitled to EQUAL share in all properties of deceased. Second Wife does get nothing.

2. Second Wife (IF is a Hindu) being illegitimate, may subsequently claim from the shares of her own children, for her sustenance and maintenance etc....
