Inheritance Lawyer in Poland
Law of Succession
A last will and testament should not be created without professional advice and consultation. A will that is invalid or a will that has not been carefully prepared can have far-reaching consequences.
If there is no will, the law will determine heirs. Inheritance law distinguishes legal heirs according to their degree of kinship in ranked order. At the top, widows or widowers and children of the testator are heirs of the first order. But parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and other relatives may also arrive as legal heirs to take their share of an inheritance. We examine each individual case to determine who is entitled to inherit and how large any individual share of the inheritance is.
Without a will, the law determines the shares in estates. We determine the share of the inheritance for each heir in the circumstances of each case.
A testator may exclude their children from their inheritance only in exceptional cases. Children have the right to a legal portion of inheritance. There are often disputes in regards to the amount of that portion. We support heirs to determine, verify and enforce their portion of the inheritance. In other cases, our attorneys assist in the defense against false claims to inheritance.
