Specialists in international successions

The growing mobility of nationals of the Member States of the Union is not limited to tourist trips without the need to carry a passport, but in many cases involves genuine immigration from one country to another. The change of residence of people within the European Union usually generates enormous legal problems for the relatives and creditors of people who, at the time of death, reside in another State of the Union other than the one of which they are nationals. The most frequent problems are those in which, after the death of a foreign subject in Spain:

Some of their relatives reside in Spain but others do so abroad.
No family member resides in Spain but the deceased had assets in Spain.
The deceased has assets (real estate, checking accounts, vehicles, etc.) in different states of the Union and even in third States.

In these situations, both the family members and the creditors of the deceased raise various questions such as: In which country to initiate the succession? Which law is applicable to the succession, Spanish or that of the nationality of the deceased? Is there a will? ? ?, Where and how to enforce the will?, Is a will made abroad valid in Spain?, What taxes must be paid? How to sell the properties of a foreigner who died in Spain? etc These and other questions can only be answered by an expert in International Inheritance Law.

Living will

The Living Will or Prior Instructions consists of a written statement through which a person expresses, in advance, the medical care that he wishes or does not wish to receive, in the event of suffering from an irreversible or terminal illness that prevents him from expressing himself.

There is also the option to speak out regarding organ donation.

The Living Will allows the appointment of a representative of the aforementioned expression of will who, if necessary, will have the capacity to interpret the Living Will and ensure that it is fulfilled.

There are two options to grant the Living Will:

Before three witnesses.

However, I recommend doing it before a Notary, as it avoids having to participate in such private decisions to other people and, in addition, it is possible to register them later so that they are also recorded in the Public Health Administration.
