Inheritance law is fundamentally about succession planning and includes last wills, marital and inheritance contracts or inheritance agreements, the division of the estate, and the enforcement of inheritance claims or the defense against such claims. In particular, the following topics are especially important:

  • Testamentary dispositions (last wills and testaments) (see notary public)
  • Inheritance Contracts (see notary public)
  • Division of the estate
  • Inheritance claims
  • Estate planning
  • Execution of wills
  • Settlement of the estate
  • Support of community of heirs in the settlement of the estate
