Inheritances and wills
The death of a relative is always a difficult and traumatic event. But with all the sorrow involved, the situation also requires dealing with bureaucratic procedures that include division of property, probating a will, resolving family disputes and facilitating a resolution as painless as possible..
Optimally, the deceased leaves a valid will in which it is described in great detail who the family members receive which parts of the property belong to the deceased.
If there is no will, the heirs are as follows: half of the value of the assets passes to the current spouse (ie husband or wife, or alternatively – a spouse according to a publicly known letter) and the other half is divided equally between the descendants.
But in life there are usually cases where the procedure is not so simple, if there are children from a previous marriage or other relatives who believe that the deceased promised them a specific property, etc.
Inheritance law is included in family law and is adjudicated in the Family Court and (by agreement of the parties) the Rabbinical Court.
Lawyers in inheritance distribution proceedings
In the absence of a will, a petition to the Registrar of Succession is required in order to recognize the legal heirs, sometimes a person is appointed to be the administrator of the estate with responsibility for settling the deceased’s financial affairs (which are sometimes debts and not assets) and making all divisions to the satisfaction of all involved.
An experienced and professional lawyer in the field of estates and wills can make it possible to move the process along as quickly as possible, resolve disputes and allow all parties to return to the routine of life.
