Wills And Successions In Louisiana
Louisiana law handles the transferring of a deceased’s person property differently than most other states. As a community property state, Louisiana distinguishes between property the deceased owned together with his or her spouse, and separate property he or she owned solely. This makes determining who inherits property very complicated, especially when the deceased is survived by a spouse, along with children and other descendants.
Having a will can simplify matters, but it is still vital that you use an attorney who is familiar with succession law. Our lawyers are very well-versed in the law and the procedures involved. With our assistance, you will be able to settle the estate according to your loved one’s wishes and with a minimum of cost and delay.
Few successions lead to family disputes, but sometimes a relative may challenge the validity of the will. In case you are accused of fraud in relation to the will, we will provide a strong defense.
