7 Questions Answered
- Q. Is a succession necessary if the person has no legal heirs just a surviving spouse?
- A: Yes. A succession is necessary to transfer ownership to whomever inherits and to separate out the spouses' interests in the community property.
- Q. Louisiana Law, what does it mean when the will says "estate shall pass to my descendants, per stirpes?"
- A: "Per Stirpes" means "by branch" as opposed to "per capita" which would be by the person. So, in this case, daughter A's children receive her share and each gets 1/4 of it. Daughter B would have to split the property with Daughter A's four children, but not evenly. Daughter B would get half and each of the four children would get 1/8.
- Q. What is Louisiana civil code 996 and where can I get a copy
- A: You can get all of Louisiana codified state law here: https://www.legis.la.gov/legis/lawsearch.aspx There is no Civil Code Art. 996 nor code of Civil Procedure Art. 996. Not sure what you are looking for.
