Patelin.conseil Avocats offers advice on international succession
In practice, succession is a simple notion, it is the set of patrimonial consequences resulting from a death. However, behind the appearance of this simplicity lies a certain complexity, especially when the succession has a foreign element and acquires an international character.
The international character of the succession implies the application of the rules of private international law in matters of succession, but not only. The law of succession is a hybrid law insofar as it obliges to take into consideration the rules of family law, which implies an intersection in the application of the various rules of private international law.
Conflicts of laws or jurisdictions regularly arise in a sometimes-difficult context due to the plurality of heirs and their nationalities or the location of the deceased’s assets.
The complexity of international law requires the assistance of professionals capable of understanding conflicts of laws and jurisdictions, to inform you of the possibilities offered by the choice of law applicable to your estate, as well as the restrictions imposed by international public policy.
