Who is a legal heir when the deceased person does not have children, a spouse or parents?

 Generally, the spouse, parents and children of the deceased’s person will be considered as the immediate legal heirs. However, if the deceased does not have any of the aforesaid legal heirs, then his or her grandchildren will be the legal heirs. In case, the deceased does not have grandchildren either, then the brothers or sisters of the deceased will be the legal heirs.
