Last Will and Testament
As a starting point, the law regulates who the heirs of a deceased person are. Anyone from the age of 16 can deviate from these legal regulations by making a last will and testament. A will is only valid if it is drawn up and signed by a civil-law notary.
In a will, you may decide for yourself what should happen to your estate and who you want to appoint as your heirs. In addition to appointing heirs, you can arrange other matters in a will that are not regulated by law; a guardianship for your minor children, excluding the partners of your children, or appointing an administrator or executor for your inheritance are examples of other matters which can be considered.
We realize that appropriate answers and solutions need to be tailored to each person and their own unique situation. Should you have questions about your personal situation, please contact our office to make an appointment.
