Successions

Losing a loved one is difficult for anyone. Transferring ownership of property or separating assets following the death of a loved one can be a nightmare if not handled properly.  You may have questions after someone you love passes away regarding estate planning, such as:


  • Do I need to or how do I open a succession?
  • Who gets what property?
  • Can I sell property?
  • What is a testator or a testatrix?
  • What do we do with a will?


Anytime a Louisiana resident owns assets and passes away dies, a succession is required to oversee the management and distribution of those assets to the appropriate heirs. Some  believe that if an individual dies with a last will and testament, the succession is avoided; however, that is incorrect. 


Properly transferring ownership of property following the death of a loved one is the primary purpose of a succession.  If the person who died had a will, that will, or “testament”, will have to go through probate.
