But, what will?
Testament is a document that expresses the will of a person concerning the Division of his assets after your death or may contain off-balance issues as recognition of son, tutors children, naming beneficiaries on life insurance, a destination pet, etc.
The person may make as many wills you want, but the last one before your death. As stated in Art. One thousand eight hundred fifty-eight of the Civil Code. “The will is a personal act, and may be changed at any time.” For that will have validity, there are some rules to be followed. By law 50% of goods are intended for children and spouses the other 50%, the person can leave anyone, whether physical or legal person (with some exceptions). TELL YOUR PROBLEM HERE. Ask your questions.
What kinds of wills?
– Public Will – is the will drawn up before a notary and two witnesses. See articles 1,864 to 1,867 of the Civil Code. This type of will is a lot harder to be questioning your legitimacy since it subtends the notary knows the law. In any case, ideally a trust your solicitor to review all the terms.
Wills Witness – is the will drawn up in secret. This type of will has an advantage for your secrecy. However, has the risk of being lost or destroyed or is opened/tampered with or without permission of the testator will be revoked, that is, set aside. See articles 1,868 1,875 to Civil Code
Will Private -Can be done in his handwriting or by some mechanical equipment like a computer for example. It must be drawn up in the presence of three witnesses and most importantly must have the signature of the testator in all pages of the will. See articles up to 1,880 1,876 Civil Code.
It’s worth pointing out that the tester duty is in perfect mental capacity at the time of realisation of any Testament, otherwise runs the risk of being aborted by an action for annulment of Testament.
In this way, our expert counsel will adopt every precaution so that the will not be annulled in the future not to be drawn up by the law. Also, we also work with the annulment of Testament. In this case, try to find some loophole to be the partial or total annulment of the will, if you have some.
