Simple Successions

New Orleans Simple Successions Attorneys

Over 25 Years of Experience Handling Simple Successions

Not all estates are complicated or expensive. In many situations, our firm can complete the succession process and put heirs into possession of their inheritance in a matter of days at a substantially reduced cost when compared to complex successions. Our firm can help you determine if the estate qualifies for distribution as a simple succession.

Our Simple Succession Practice

To qualify for simple succession, however, the estate must be relatively debt free and all heirs must sign in acceptance of the succession.

In our experience, the vast majority of estates can be resolved with a simple succession, a process that customarily can be completed in just a few days, provided all necessary information is available and all of the heirs' signatures can be obtained. Some simple successions can qualify for a flat fee, with fees ranging from $1,000 to $2,000, plus court costs and recording fees.
