Succession Law

Succession Law


Law Firm InRight / Drobitko & Partners offers legal services in the field of succession law. No matter how sad but sooner or later each and every one of us are faced with the issues of inheritance. The Civil Code of the Republic of Lithuania establishes a three month period during which you must apply for the acceptance of the inheritance (counted from the date of the death of the deceased), therefore in order to accept the inheritance, it is imperative to act within the shortest amount of time possible following the passing of your relative. We insist that you do not postpone your actions till the last day.


Law Firm InRight has been settling and is continuing to settle legal issues relating to succession of many clients from various countries. Usually, foreign citizens or Lithuanian citizens living in foreign countries are not accustomed with the procedures of succession nor the legal norms governing the procedures of succession or they simply cannot come to Lithuania in person to settle the issues of inheritance. Legal help of an attorney is invaluable in the above mentioned situations: qualified attorney will not only provide you with all of the necessary information and establish the necessary course of actions but will also step in the place of the person themselves during the succession procedures. The client will not need to take any actions personally, instead everything will be settled by the appointed attorney. As a rule, foreign clients acquiring inheritance by succession usually entrust us with the administration/realization of the said inheritance.


Even though, succession is a simple legal procedure and persons are not usually confronted with complications during the acceptance of the inheritance, legal disputes over the inheritance/right of succession are still quite common: the successor may miss the deadline set forth by the law, disputes may arise over the testament, etc. Qualified legal help is required in the above situations. Sometimes we are even faced with situations where we have to prove the family link, locate the inheritance and many other complicated situations.


Law Firm InRight / Drobitko & Partners offers their clients the following legal services within the field of succession law:

 

• Legal consultations;
• Drafting and preparation of procedural documents;
• Representation of clients during all of the stages of the acceptance of the inheritance;
• Administration/realization of the inheritance;
• Representation of parties (claimants/defendants/third parties) in courts of all instances and during the arisen disputes of inheritance.


The above list of services is not final.
