What to Do in the Event of Death

Probate of a Will
Probate of a Will

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.

You can ask a notary or a lawyer to take the necessary steps on your behalf or you can take them yourself.
