i want to now if two of the children left out can contested
Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.

Were they in any way financially reliant on her - and did she say why she was leaving them out?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
not to my knowlege as far that i now she chenge the will 5 or 6 time end last time she chenge the will was dicembre last year
Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.

The children left out can certainly attempt to challenge the Will - but it is not likely that they will be successful unless they can show that she was supporting them financially; or that undue influence was brought to bear on her to exclude them.

I hope that this is of assistance = please ask if you need further details
