Succession is the process of settling a deceased person’s estate and distributing the property after debts are paid. This process is called probate in other states. Succession is also used to refer to the estate a person leaves behind at death. A succession is either testate or intestate, depending on whether the decedent executed a valid last will and testament. A succession can be contested and may need to be disputed because of the actions of others. If a succession is contested, you need a firm that has the experience and skill to successfully represent you in a contested succession. Louisiana laws are very different from any other state. Louisiana has very strict laws that control where property goes after someone dies. If you have any questions about what may happen to your property, we can help.
