Compulsory Portion

According to German law the compulsory portion secures a minimum share in the estate for the closest relatives (descendants, the spouse and -if there are no descendants- the parents).

We deal with all aspects concerning the compulsory portion on the side of relatives entitled to a compulsory portion as well as on the side of heirs confronted with a claim for a compulsory portion.

We are also often consulted in advance and help testators to establish their last will with consideration of the possible right to a compulsory portion of a close relative.
