This page is being updated. Meanwhile, as the information currently online may not be complete, we invite you to consult the French version. Thank you for your understanding.

If the deceased left a notarial will, it is not necessary to have it probated. On the other hand, if the deceased left a holograph will or a will made in the presence of witnesses (even if it was made before a lawyer), the will must be probated by a notary or the court for its validity to be recognized.
