Who would find this Service useful?

Dealing with a loved one's death abroad can be particularly challenging, especially in a country like Turkey, where legal and cultural practices might differ significantly from those in English-speaking countries. 

Our legal service is designed to assist English-speaking expats and individuals who have lost a loved one in Turkey, providing comprehensive support and guidance through this difficult time, in particular:

  • English-speaking expats residing in Turkey.
  • Families and friends of individuals who have passed away in Turkey, seeking assistance with legal procedures and repatriation services.
  • Those needing expert legal advice and support related to a death in Turkey.
