Inheritance attorney: what is our work?
Our work is wills and inheritances. We help people who need to make a will, or who need to deal with an inheritance after someone has passed away. This may include helping to distribute assets, settle debts, and transfer property. It may also involve managing the probate process, which is the legal process to prove that a will is valid.
There are many different situations where we can help you. If you have been left an inheritance, we can help you claim it. If there is no will, we can help you inherit as next of kin. If there is a will, we can help you challenge it if you feel it has been unfairly set aside.
What are the main services of an inheritance lawyer?
1- Inheritance claim
This service consists of claiming what corresponds to you by law or by will. Our team of lawyers will study your particular case and advise you on the steps to follow to receive your inheritance.
2- Inheritance without will
If the deceased person did not leave a will, we can help you inherit as a next of kin. We will need to obtain a death certificate and register as heir with the relevant authorities.
3- Inheritance with will
If there is a will, we can help you challenge it if you think you have been unfairly excluded. We can also help you with the probate process, which is the legal process to prove that a will is valid.
4- Inheritance with legal or forced heirs
This situation occurs when there are legal heirs such as a spouse or child, who have the right to inherit even if they are not named in the will. We can help you claim your inheritance in this case.

To claim your inheritance, you will need a death certificate. We can obtain this document for you and advise you on the steps to follow.

It is a legal procedure in which the court declares who the heirs are. It is necessary when there is no will or when the identity of the heirs is unknown.
8- Renunciation of inheritance
If you don’t want to inherit, you can renounce the inheritance. This must be done within a certain period and with the help of an inheritance attorney.

We can help you plan your estate so that your assets are distributed according to your wishes. We can also advise you on how to minimize taxes and other responsibilities.
