Notaires also pay a particular attention in providing legal advices and help families regarding: asset management, joint ownership, pre-nuptial agreement, wills, gifts, divorce settlements, family partnerships (“sociétés civiles familiales”), etc.
They are confidents and witnesses of changes affecting family structures (decrease of married couples, increase of divorces and of non married couples) and their assets (due to mobility, professional and personal changes, or indebtedness).
Consequently, they provide clients a personal legal and tax advice in order to take in consideration new needs occurring from by such changes (accommodation, additional pension, etc.).
Notaires can also advise on the consequences of a divorce, death, or accidental disability. They can be consulted at all times of life, especially for estate planning or transfers of ownership inside and outside the scope of the family.
