website_update1.gifMy daughter is half polish and her father just passed away. He is re-married and has 5 other children. I know he left her on the will but not sure how it was phrased. Either her name specifically or as one of his 6 children. His wife is holding on to the will and we will probably have to go to Poland to resolve this, My question is: What are the laws in Poland regarding inheritance for children? Thank you
In polish law children and spouse are in first group of inheriors, so in situation without will their inherit all inheritance by law. All of them in the same parts, but when there is more than 3 children, spouse inherit inheritance and children rest of them in the same parts. If there is will, and children doesn't inherit by it, it can demand 'zachowek' is testimony law institution with means, that children must get of part which it inherit by law or 2/3 part when children is under 18 years old.

I have a question relating to inheritance laws. What is the general law in absence of a will or testament? My inquiry is related to real estate and land property in the area of Nowy Sacz. If I can be more specific, does the surviving spouse automatically inherit all property or do the children also automatically inherit a portion? Again, this is in the absence of a will or testatment. Thank you.
Polish civil code from 23.04.1964 contains iheritance law regulations (articles 922-1087). Civil code distinguishes testamentary succession and intestate succession. Your question concerns intestate succession, which we use, when testator didn’t leave a will or he left a will, but people he made his heirs can't or don't want to be successors. In response to Your question, in case of intestate succession in the first place, children and surviving spouse inherit in equal parts, but the part for the spouse can't be smaller than 1/4 of the whole inheritance. When testator’s child had died before the inheritance was opened, his part goes on to his/her children (testator’s grandchildren) in equal parts. When testator doesn't have any descendants, the spouse inherits, but also parents and testator’s brothers and sisters. The part for the surviving spouse is 1/2 of the whole inheritance. Finally, surviving spouse inherits whole succession, when there are no descendants, parents, brothers or sisters. Civil code anticipates a possibility of challenge of surviving spouse from intestate succession, when testator complains divorce suit or separation suit sentenced due to neglect of surviving spouse and it was a justified demand.

I have a situation which causes me to have a question regarding how someone in the USA can find out when a Polish relative passes away. We do not speak Polish, they do not speak English. Are deaths recorded anywhere that can be checked from time to time? What information would we need to find out? Is full name and date of birth enough?
You have got couple option. First is check it in polish Central Bureau of Addresses (part of Ministry of Interior and Administration). You send there yours appliaction, where You include all known informations about yours relative. It’s costs 30,40 zl per one person, and You will be waiting couple months. You should can do it by the agency of your Consulate. Second options is to contact with right Registry Office in their last known place of living, and ask about registry certificates (marriage or death).

Hi, I have a friend that has a problem. She has been living in this country for a couple of years and is unable to speak english. The problem is that her landlord has asked her to move out asap, and she does not have the funds to move into another room. The landlord is a family member and is aware that she does not have funds at the moment.Unfortunately she has not signed any agreement or there has been no verbal contract. Please could you help me to try and help her, she is feeling desperate because she has her son living with her from Romania, and im feeling helpless, because I really want to help her.
If she paying rent we can adopt implied intent of the parties to conclude hire contract - than exist 3-month notice period. In other situation we can adopt that landlord behaviour break principles of community life - so is unlawful.

Germany and Great Britain set special restrictions for importing cigarettes from Poland. EU citizens are allowed to carry up to 200 cigarettes from Poland without extra customs.
