What is the position of widow in case of intestate property?

In case the deceased intestate has left widow and lineal descendants, one third of the property will go to the widow and remaining two thirds to the lineal descendants.  In case of only widow with kindred but with no lineal descendants the widow will get 50% of the share in the property and the remaining 50% will go to the kindred. In case of absence of any kindred or lineal descendants, the widow is entitled to full share in the property.
