Re: Help! Swiss Inheritance Laws, Problem Executor?

Things do take a long time in Switzerland, everybody wants to be sure the correct procedure has been followed. Inheritance is covered by Swiss laws, and your Aunt probably knew this and probably the Will is correct, but it needs to be seen to be correct. If for instance she had a child at some point in her life, then the child would be entitled to a large part of the estate, even if your Aunt never mentioned the child in her Will.

If there is property or jewelry, then this has to be valued, before the value is apportioned. These things all take time....

As the Swiss authorities know where you live, then you just have to be patient. Would the Executor be someone your Aunt knows, or is he a Canton employee?
