Family Patrimony

Ministère de la Justice

If you are married or in a civil union, you are a legal spouse and, almost without exception, are subject to the provisions of the Civil Code of Québec regarding family patrimony. In principle, you will receive half of the partitionable value of the family patrimony.

A will cannot circumvent the rules regarding family patrimony.
