Succession Law

In the event of the loss or death of a relative, a lawyer can help you manage the necessary formalities and settle an estate.

The loss of a parent or a relative involves several administrative and legal operations. Our partner lawyers can help you deal with these tortuous tasks that can be particularly difficult during a period of mourning.

We can distinguish two types of succession processes: a testamentary succession, when the deceased leaves a will, and a so-called "legal succession" otherwise. When the deceased has not written a will, the succession is liquidated according to the rules provided for in the Civil Code of Qu├ębec.

Regardless of the type of succession you have to deal with, it is important that you understand your rights and to know whether or not you are likely to inherit.

A lawyer can help you through this procedure by answering your questions and concerns. This includes explaining the legal terminology, the steps to be followed, the division of the family patrimony and how to go about accepting or refusing an estate.

We understand that the succession issue may be delicate and tricky, for example, if one of the parties wish to dispute the sharing of an inheritance. We therefore wish to do our utmost to assist you through the procedures to be undertaken.

Whether you are an heir, a liquidator, a trustee, or if you wish to challenge the management of an estate or a will, our partner lawyers who specialise in this field of practice can advise you adequately to defend your rights in the most efficient way possible.
