The Beneficiaries

As long as the deceased didn’t leave a will, all the assets will be divided between the existing children/s and wife/wives. However, on the off chance that the deceased had no children, the properties will be inherited by his wife/wives and deceased’s parents. Then again, in case the deceased’s parents are dead, his siblings will inherit his assets and properties. If the court can’t find any blood relations, the entire asset will be inherited by none other than the available husband or wife. Finally, in case the court of law can’t find any beneficiaries, the entire asset will belong to the State of Turkey.
