The team in Costa de Azahar
Inheritance or ‘probate’ law regulates the distribution of assets when someone, such as a family member passes away. These laws ensure that creditors are paid properly and that assets are distributed according to the final wishes of the deceased.
The complexity can of course increase when dealing with the distribution of a loved one’s assets in a foreign country with laws that are different than those that you may be accustomed to. It is therefore a real benefit and, we hope, a comfort to receive the legal support and assistance that is so much needed at this difficult time.
The Advocate Abroad law firm in the Costa Azahar will guide you and assist with compassion and understanding.
Code of Reasonable Fees
While this law firm is particularly suitable for managing those inheritance issues faced by non-resident beneficiaries, clients will not face elevated charges or fees as a result.
