After your death, a court must recognize your heirs, or legatees as the proper owners of your property before it can be used or sold. Property such as vehicles, bank accounts, homes, and tracts of land may not be legally possessed until the court has granted a Judgment of Possession identifying the owners. This process is called a succession and my office can guide your heirs or legatees through the succession. I am available to consult with family members of the deceased to explain how the process works and see that the decedent’s wishes are fulfilled.
In the event a person passes away without the benefit of a Will, I can assist the family in identifying the proper heirs, in order for the legal succession of the property to take place.
If one of your family members has passed away, please remember there are legal burdens that must be met prior to the actual inheritance of any property, even in the event the deceased had a Will. Please contact my law office to discuss how to quickly and smoothly addresses these important legal matters.
