Spanish legislation differs significantly from Dutch. It is good to consider these differences when you start to live in Spain, and you want to get married and/or have children. In these cases, it is important to be able to get support from our Dutch-speaking advisers.
Although Spanish law has legislation on the distribution of inheritances, there is some freedom to choose the distribution in the will. It should be borne in mind that Spanish law does not always apply; Dutch law (or both laws) sometimes govern inheritance.
Thinking about your death or having to manage the inheritance of a family member or a good friend can be a delicate question for many people. If it also takes place in a foreign country and in another language, it can be even more complex. In these cases, it is important to have an expert in the field who will also advise you in your own language.
