The importance of possessing a notarial will is no longer to be demonstrated. But too many people are unaware of his superiority over the holographic will or the will signed before witnesses. The superiority of a notarial will resides in the fact that it will not need to be verified nor approved by the notary or the Court. The notarial will is registered at the « Chambre des notaires » and it is incontestable. The settlement of the estate will be considerably simplified and you will save money on the lengthy and expensive verification and homologation procedures.
It should be noted that the will includes very important elements such as the division of your assets, the appointment of your executor, the appointment of a guardian for your minor children, but also the appointment of an administrator to manage their assets until they reach the age that you have determined for them to receive their assets.
The protection mandate (also known as a mandate given in anticipation of your incapacity) refers to a person that you trust, to whom you will entrust the management of your assets and the care to make the best decisions about yourself. You decide in advance how you want to manage your wealth and how to take care of your person in case of incapacity.
If you so wish, Notary Martin can also proceed with the celebration of your marriage.
