Law of succession

Law of succession

Law of succession is one of the oldest branches of law. Most people have to deal with succession at least once in their lifetime; hence it is a common belief that legal representation in succession is not needed. Technically, this is true, as the law does not impose an obligation for the heir to be represented by a lawyer. However, laypeople often do not possess either the knowledge, ability or time to efficiently assert their rights in succession. Besides that, the process of succession is emotionally draining for all that are involved, which can lead to imprudent behavior and emergence of conflicts. Therefore, the view that a lawyer is not needed with regards to succession often turns out to be erroneous.
