59-504. Surviving spouse.
If the decedent leaves a spouse and no children
nor issue of a previously deceased child, all the decedent's property shall
pass to the surviving spouse. If the decedent leaves a spouse and a child,
or children, or issue of a previously deceased child or children, one-half
of such property shall pass to the surviving spouse.
59-505. Same; half of realty to surviving spouse.
Except as provided further, the surviving spouse
shall be entitled to receive one-half of all real estate of which the
decedent at any time during the marriage was seized or possessed and to the
disposition whereof the survivor shall not have consented in writing, or by
a will, or by an election as provided by law to take under a will, except
such real estate as has been sold on execution or judicial sale, or taken by
other legal proceeding.
The surviving spouse shall not be entitled to any interest under the
provisions of this section in any real estate of which such decedent in such
decedent's lifetime made a conveyance, when such spouse at the time of the
conveyance was not a resident of this state and never had been during the
existence of the marriage relation. The spouse's entitlement under this
section shall be included as part of the surviving spouse's property under
K.S.A. 59-6a207, and amendments thereto.

If the decedent leaves a child, or children, or
issue of a previously deceased child or children, and no spouse, all his or
her property shall pass to the surviving child, or in equal shares to the
surviving children and the living issue, if any, of a previously deceased
child, but such issue shall collectively take only the share their parent
would have taken had such parent been living. If the decedent leaves such
child, children, or issue, and a spouse, one-half of such property shall
pass to such child, children, and issue as aforesaid.
