What to Do in the Event of Death

Family Patrimony

If you are the legal spouse of the deceased you should be aware that the provisions of the Civil Code of Québec regarding family patrimony take precedence over wills and any testamentary clauses in marriage or civil union contrats, but do not invalide them.

In principle, you will receive half of the partitionable value of the family patrimony.
