My husband and I are British but resident in France. We have about 30000euros in a joint account. We do not own any property in France. We live in a house that belongs to my four children. We do not own any valuable assets. Is it necessary for us to make French Wills? I am 74 and my husband (who is not well) is 72. I thank you in advance for your help. I can pay you by Visa credit card.

Hello,

I have reached out to our French lawyers, none of whom are on line at this time. It is a weekend.

We cannot predict when a question will get a reply from a professional. That depends upon a number of factors such as the nature, complexity and subject area of the question and the areas of professional expertise and time constraints of the lawyers online.
Hello, In French law you do not need to make a will unless you do not want your money to go to your spouse and your children if you pass away before them. In French law, one can not disinherit one's children and therefore at least 35% will go to your children by law. By law you money will be divide between your husband and your children in proportions provided by the French law. If you do want to write out a will, in France it is very easy. It must be totally hand written. If it is typed, it will not be valid. Every word, letter and number must be hand written.
