Under Turkish Law one can not directly exclude a spouse, child or grandchild.

However, it is your legal right to exclude these persons from your will if you choose too. And after your death, as long as there is no petition against your will, then your wishes will be upheld.

If however, the excluded spouse or family member chooses to petition your will, then it will be decided in the Turkish court and likely be changed according to Turkish Law:-

The spouse gets a quarter while three-quarters go to the child or children. If the deceased had no children then half will instead go to the spouse, the remainder will go to parents, grandparents and grandchildren or on a pro-rata basis to other family members.
