Title:Problems of intestate succession in Ghana
Author:Kludze, A.K.P.ISNI
Periodical:University of Ghana Law Journal
Geographic term:Ghana
Subjects:customary law
family law
Abstract:The correct rule of customary law is that the individual right to succeed on intestacy is one conferred by the customary law. The family has a discretion to pass over the person who has a right to succeed, but it can only do so where the reasons therefore are strong and compelling. This is illustrated in the following sections: Testacy under the customary law. Samansiw - The Marriage of Mohammedans Ordinance (Cap. 129) - Intestacy under the Marriage Ordinance (Cap. 127) - Intestate succession under customary law - The family as successor - The problem of the meaning of the family - The right to succeed. Notes. The article is followed by a comment of Kwamena Bentsi-Enchill 'Intestate succession revisited', p. 123-134.
