Wills, Probate and Succession Law in Louisiana
At some point in our lives, we start to think of what will happen to our assets when our time here is gone. It is prudent for all of us to consider writing a will so that we can direct who will be entitled to our assets upon our death. Considerations include protecting family and loved ones and those special causes each of us may have. A last will and testament can be written to ensure that your wishes are carried out at the time of your death.
In Louisiana, we have three ways to handle a succession or probate proceeding:
- Use of a simple placing into possession. Although not simple, this is a process which can be used if an estate is relatively free from debt and all heirs or legatees are in agreement regarding the handling of the estate.
- Independent administration. A relatively new procedure called independent administration allows an independent administrator to handle more complex successions in a much more efficient manner than handled in the past.
- Administered succession. The third option is the traditional administered succession which provides safeguards for those more complex succession proceedings.
