Blended families, unknown heirs or heirs living abroad:
We will explore all avenues so that the estate can be settled as quickly as possible.
Our experience means we are able to search for heirs in France and abroad. Given our location in the South of France, we are regularly required to carry out research in Italy and trace sixth-degree heirs, which sometimes results in us heading to the United States or Latin America to continue our search.
of an estate
The heirs appear to be known but are unable to justify their share or demonstrate that there are no heirs of a closer degree? In the absence of a family record book, our probate genealogists will attest, through their research, to the accuracy of a preferred collateral devolution of an estate, or they will establish a genealogical table certifying there are no other cousins.
Assistance in establishing
title to property
We can also help identify or attest to the capacity of the heirs in the context of inactive bank accounts or dormant life insurance contracts.
Searching for the
origins of ownership
It is sometimes necessary to establish the origin of ownership of an estate when previous successions have not been transcribed, and the current owner is not entitled.
