. As of 1996, the rules of forced heirship are as follows:
All children who have not attained the age of 24 are forced heirs.
All children (of any age) who, at the time of the death of their parent, are permanently incapable of taking care of their person or administering their estate, due or mental or physical incapacity, are forced heirs.
Grandchildren are forced heirs of their grandparents if the grandparent's child (the grandchild's parent) would not have reached the age of 24 at the time of the grandparent's death.
Grandchildren whose parent has predeceased the grandparent are forced heirs of their grandparent if the grandchild is permanently incapable of taking care of their person or estate, due to mental or physical incapacity, at the time of the grandparent's death
