Legal Answers
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:

There is no Civil Code Art. 996 nor code of Civil Procedure Art. 996. Not sure what you are looking for.
