Yes, you are entitle for share over the properties in the family. You can reopen the case subject to limitation. All children who are in the family entitle .equally. if the two wives are having children, the property is equally devide on them.

Under hindu law, as far as succession to property is concerned, there is no distinction between the rights born to children out of first or second wife. In your case, you acquired a right on the ancestral property by birth therefore you are eligible for a share in the property.

It's a self acquired property and your father has divided it among the three of his sons as is his prerogative and he has all the right to do so as it's not ancestral property. You don't get a share in the property which is already divulged to your brothers.
