VGS Family Lawyers provide full assistance in case you are willing to protect your wealth, by helping in the drafting of your will or in the setting up a trust, within the wider context of the administration of an estate. Either if you are the beneficiary or the executor and someone is challenging your title, or if you are the one who is willing to challenge someone else title.
Italian Law is very strict in terms of inheritance and sets forth the obligation to maintain the reserved quotas of estate for certain categories of close relatives. This is mandatory and it is very difficult to get to manage with such a disposition.
According to the Italian Law, if you die without having drafted a will your assets will be distributed according to intestate succession. In other words, this means that the closest individuals of the de cuius will be legitimate to receive a share of the estate.
In particular, intestate succession law will identify several subjects who have the right to participate in the division of the estate. Each identified subject will be called (according to a specific ranking) to accept or decline the share who has been assigned.
Intestate succession law favours those individuals who presumably had the closest relationship with the deceased. In fact, privileged subjects normally are the spouse, sons, the closest relatives and, lastly, the State.
Our Probate Team works along with you in the research of the most cost-effective solution to preserve your rights and assets in this respect.
