The solution to the distribution of inheritance to adopted children according to positive law with a will is obligatory with provisions not exceeding 1/3 of inheritance, but in reality, this 1/3 part is too large, so in reality adopted children or adoptive parents only get part 1 / 10 to 1/8, because part 1/3 exceeds the share of experts who have a closer or more rightful relationship, such as a wife who only obtains 1/4 of inheritance if she does not have children and a mother who only gets 1 / 6 of inheritance.
