Re: Inheritance Agreement or Will

There is a possibility for a married couple with children to bestow their part on the surviving spouse. It is called "Meistbegünstigung". This is a practical solution if there is a house and the widow/widower can continue leaving in it and the children would inherit it after the other parent dies.

However, this "Meistbegünstigung" needs a marriage contract (Ehevertrag) done by a notary and costs up to several thousands fr. Is there any other solution? Can this arrangement be done by a written will?
