"de qui" USAGE.

When the owner is a person, you can alternatively use "de qui" as well as dont:

Les enfants, de qui je connais la maman, sont bien élevés.

The children, whose mum I know, are well behaved.

Can I say that
Les enfants, de qui les pères sont riches, sont bien élevés.

The children, whose fathers are rich, are well behaved

I wish your helps...
Merci beaucoup

No! I don't think so.

In this case I believe that "dont" is more appropriate because you are expressing the children "of whom" I know the mother.

The children "of whom" the father is rich ....
