Lightbulb Familiares de primer grado/segundo grado

How do you say in English familiares de primer y segundo grado:
1st degree family?

Ok, though I meant in official documents, when sb dies and you´re given some days off if you are a first degree relative or whatever.

Would this be referring to in-laws? mother-in-law, brother-in-law,
nieces/nephew by marriage?

No, we say "grado" to know the kind of proximity of a relative.

My parents and my sons are familiares de primer grado.
My brothers and sisters are familiares de segundo grado.
My uncles and cousins are familiares de tercer grado.

Grado can be for consanguinity or for affinity. My own relatives are for consanguinity. My partner's relatives are for affinity. I mean: my husband's parents are mis familiares de primer grado por afinidad; my own parents are mis familiares de primer grado por consanguinidad.

Then I misunderstood the OP. This is clearly a Spanish definition, which might be the same in English, but because it has no legal inheritance implications in the UK, I don't know.

Looks OK to me - sounds like a formal legal expression. I would not be able to define it if asked.
