French Family Law, Succession and Estate

One of the core areas of French family law is the protection and management of an estate. Marriages, a large part of family law in their own right, have implications regarding how an estate is shared and subsequently the estate's inheritance. It is necessary to take measures to protect yourself and your assets and ensure your estate remains intact and will continue to be managed as you wish. This means making adjustments to your succession plan and other aspects of your estate management to protect from unwanted changes which may result from marriage or other changes in circumstances.

We can guide you through what changes will impact your estate and how. We can also advise on maintaining or creating your desired succession plan and help in taking action to achieve this.
