If your father has left a will, which excludes the three children from the first marriage, then the three children are able to make a claim under the Family Protection Act. This act establishes that a parent has a moral obligation to leave their estate in fair proportions to the children. So where the three children from the first marriage are excluded, this breaches this moral obligation and they can make a claim under the act.
