Family law and inheritance law - Gdansk

Family law regulates the property and non-property aspects of the family. It is a part of civil law, but unlike property law or contract law, it touches on a very delicate matter of everyone’s life: the upbringing of children, marriage and its end, the determination of property issues between spouses. A lawyer undertaking cases in this area is required to have the life experience to correctly assess the cases entrusted to him or her and to anticipate what the court will be guided by if the case comes before it.

Succession law, on the other hand, regulates the rights and obligations of a deceased individual. The assistance of a lawyer is most often needed when the heirs do not know how to agree on an inheritance and so disputes arise, but a person who prepares a will and wants to protect his or her loved ones may come for a consultation on the disposition of assets on death. By doing so, he or she can prevent future disputes and resentments among family members.
