German Law/Inheritance certificate


Good day,

How does one object to an inheritance certificate ?
Who is the authority?

thank you

Dear Mike,

You can file a Beschwerde (objection) at the responsible German probate court within a month from the date the inheritance certificate was issued. This must been done in a formal letter written in German.

I would be glad to represent you in this matter you can contact directly at
