the best guarentee
for your estate
The main vocation of the firm, a major player in heir finding since 2001, is to find and represent heirs in inheritance matters.
“ Since 1972, with surprising speed, we have seen the fabric of our civil society unravel: the strong links we once had are coming undone, and cracks are appearing. Suddenly, there were fewer and fewer marriages and more common-law unions, divorces, single-parent homes, children born out of wedlock, and single people. This has been an unprecedented change. “
Evelyne SULLEROT, “Pour le meilleur et sans le pire” [For the Best and without the Worst], Fayard, 1984

what we do
Today, with many more divorces, blended families, increasing mobility, different surnames within the same family and increasing life expectancy, identifying heirs of a deceased person or the owners of property is not so easy.
However, the notary in charge of the estate is required to identify all heirs of the deceased. However, both human and material resources are often lacking when it comes to finding them. That is why genealogists are use to.
