LAWBOX: ESTATE LAW ATTORNEYS
Succession law does not only include litigation, but also estate and succession planning. Our estate attorneys can guide you in planning a family inheritance in order to avoid potential litigation following the death of a close relative, whether it is your spouse, father, mother, uncle.
In the contemporary social context, where there are large numbers of reconstituted families, the legal devolution of succession present in the Civil Code of Québec which establishes the transmission of your inheritance when their is no written wills will probably not represent your true wishes.
It is important to know that a law spouse will not inherit the property of his or her deceased spouse if there is no will. This, regardless of the length of their relationship. Similarly, children who do not have an established filiation with the deceased may not inherit. Similarly, it is possible for a child or a spouse with whom you may not have had any contacts for years to inherit all your property, in the absence of a will, and regardless of your wishes.
That is why it is essential to consult with an estate attorney or notary. This could prevent any dispute between relatives who will survive the deceased.
