There is no testament and I need to know what the law says"Grazie" said:If there is a last will and testament executed by that person - that dictates what anyone gets. Even the gardener can get the nice Porshe if it is stated in the will. Or the son gets nothing - if stated (signed and noted by the escribano)! Let me tell you it can happen. The state law only applies/kicks in, if there is no will. A wealthy or even just a well to do person usually has a lawyer and a separate escribano - to take care of estate issues.
Do you know the percentages for Argentina?"chris" said:In Argentina, unlike the US and the UK, you CAN NOT disinherit your children. If you have children, they automatically have rights to your estate. With a will you may leave a small fraction (I believe 20%) of your estate to whomever you want. Inheritance is completely different from the system followed by countries influenced by English common law.
