MERIDA Yucatan. – It has been around for 16 years and it has become one of the most successful programs conducted by the Federal Government. That is the “Month of the last will and testament”, which helps with the culture of leaving no problems to someone´s relatives when leaving this world. Dying without a will can cause severe family conflicts.
This month of September once again, comes with the program, ready to help families throughout Mexico, especially for those of lower economic resources, in order to make it easier and not leaving problems for the family members.
In an interview with the prestigious attorney Javier Briceño from “JBC Legal Services” he mentioned that it is extremely important for people who have accumulated any assets throughout their lives to make a will, otherwise, potential heirs must initiate a summary judgment.
“The last will and testament is a program of a social nature implemented in Mexico due to large amount of people who passes away without a will, leaving many problems and sometimes confrontations amongst family members. There is a need to create awareness. Dying without a will, can become a burden to the heirs since the case will have to go to a succession trial and the resolution times might long and with multiple expenses. All of that can be avoided with a simple, inexpensive procedure” he stated.
Javier Briceño said that the “last will and testament” program has general benefits, which means that anyone who wants to carry out the procedure will pay a lower rate.
