Power of attorney

Respected Experts,

Mr X has gone for second marriage after succesfully getting divorce & decree from court. Now again he has started going to his ex- wife and regularly visits the family. He has too many properties in his name, his 2nd wife has question regarding the succession of getting those properties as his legal wife. Can mr X write a will and  exclude his present & legal wife from all his properties?. Can his legal wife go for litigation to posses her stake in those properties inspite of the will?

Please advise.

If the said properties arte self acquired, then the second wife has no legal right to claim a share in those. Mr X is very much competent to dispose off those properties as per his will and whims.

agree with Mr.Augustine!
if the property is self acquired , his legal wife will not have any right which supersede the will.

but by way of litigation after death of Mr.x, she can challenge the validity of will only, if possible.
