Our experience in matters regarding liquidation, liquidators who refuse or neglect to fulfill their duty to the heirs as well as the verification or the contestation of a will is considerable and extensive.
Since 1987, we have regularly and constantly handled cases involving disputes in the field of Inheritance Law. We have extensive experience in liquidation and problems arising with a liquidator who refuses or neglects to fulfill his duties to the heirs. The most common cases of non-compliance that we have dealt with concern the lack of filing a report, of producing an inventory, of selling the assets of a succession under fair and reasonable conditions, and giving the heirs the property of a succession. Some of our cases have also involved a liquidator unrightfully taking possession of the estate’s property, compelling us to institute measures to protect the estate’s assets through seizures before judgment or safeguard orders.
We also have solid experience in verifying and contesting wills. Does a holograph will or one made in the presence of witnesses respect the conditions of validity set forth in the Civil Code of Québec? Did the testator have the required mental capacity to make a will? Was the testator unduly influenced while making his will? Has an heir conducted himself in such an unworthy or shameful manner to the point of losing his right to inherit? We have been asked these and many other questions and have answered them with our clients’ best interests in mind.
Finally, we also aid liquidators with the liquidation of an estate.
