Inheritance: how to divide the deceased's assets when there is no testament


It often happens that those who die have not made a will

In these cases, the law establishes rules for dividing the assets of the deceased among the relatives surviving

The estate is also separated spouse if the latter has not been at fault in the separation, in the judgment of separation.

This obviously does not apply in the case of a divorced spouse. - If together with the spouse, surviving children (legitimate, natural or adopted), it is necessary to distinguish:) if the child is only one: a half of the assets of the deceased passes to the spouse and the other half to the son) if the children are more than one: one of three of the estate passes to the spouse and the remaining two or three shall be divided in equal parts among the children.

- If there is no surviving spouse and there are only one or more sons, the estate passes in its entirety to the son only, or, in equal parts, to all the children.

Also in this case, nothing passes to the brothers, sisters or other relatives. grandchildren, i.e. children of its children), the whole of the estate passes in equal shares, to the latter.

- If the deceased survive, the spouse and brothers or sisters from the legitimate (or their descendants) or parents, and, at the same time, there are no children (or the children are not surviving), or other descendants (such as grandchildren): two three of the inheritance goes to the spouse and one of the three to the brothers, sisters and parents.

- If the deceased leaves no spouse, nor children, nor other descendants, nor brothers and sisters, nor parents, but leaves other ascendants (e.g. grandparents), his property will go half to the ascendants of the paternal line and, for the other half, to the ascendants of the maternal line. This provided that the ascendants of equal degree (for example, if there are two grandfathers, one paternal and one maternal). If, instead, the ancestors are of a different degree (a grandfather and a great-grandmother), it inherits only the ascendant, the next highest (in this case, the grandfather). - If the deceased leaves only relatives from the third to the sixth grade, there are only those closer (for the first uncles, then cousins, great-aunts and uncles, etc) in equal shares. For example, the existence of an uncle (considered to be a relative of the third degree) excludes from the inheritance of the cousins considered as relatives of the fourth degree). If there are no uncles, but only three cousins and two great-aunts and uncles, all the goods are divided in equal parts between the cousins. When a son or a brother sister, which would be entitled to the inheritance or a share of the estate, renounces or dies before the deceased, his share is divided among his descendants. For example, if the deceased leaves two sons, Guy and Caio (each for a fee of fifty), and Caio renounce the inheritance (or die before the parent), the share of Caius is to be divided among the sons of Caius same (each of which will be then the twenty-five of the legacy of the total). - the severance pay, that is up to the spouse, children and any relatives within the third degree that were charged to the deceased and to any relatives of the spouse within the second degree, always at the expense of the deceased - the possible right to compensation for damages in the case in which the death occurred for a given act from the responsibility of others (e.g. a road accident).

- If there are no children, but other descendants (e.g

If the two spouses buy a piece of land (the land is registered to him) and they have six children and the wife is missing, he remarries and his second wife has six other children, at the time that he is missing who is to inherit and to what extent.
