Hi, my wife has just received the will from her deceased parents. She has been told she is only entitled to Pflichtteil. Her brother and sister have been named as full recipients. And my wife part. Can you please tell me what the minimum percentage she should recieve please. The will is for 130.000 euros. She has been told she will only receive 21.600 euros, does this sound correct? Kind regards, Martin
JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: We are in England, but the will is German and comes under German law
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: Yes the will has been served, hence why I need advice from a German lawyer
JA: Anything else you want the Expert to know before I connect you?

Thank you

Normally each child would get a third

The Pflichtteil is half of that.

So it would be one sixth.
