Widow legal inheritor

If there are no ascendants or descendants, the widow or widower inherits, provided that he or she is not separated from the deceased, either in fact or by court resolution.

Regardless of the existence of a descendant or an ascendant, a surviving widow or widower will always acquire a succession right of a reserved portion.

The reserved portion of the widow or widower is always in usufructo.

An unmarried partner does not have the right to be named as an inheritor in a case where the deceased dies intestate.
