I am sorry to hear about this situation. Unfortunately, unless these children are biological children or adopted of your ex spouse they are not entitled to any portion of the estate of his parents. He is free to do with the estate he inherits as he wishes if he is to survive his parents. But nothing can be done legally to compel anything be inherited. As I said if your husband survives he is able to create his own will and direct his estate to be divided 3 ways but he is under no legal obligation to do so.
All my best and encouragement. Thank you for allowing me to help you with your questions.
