Application Form for Open Will in Notarial Office
Important: In the case of spouses, they can make a Joint Will and mutually declare themselves HEIRS, and if they passed away simultaneously they can appoint a subsidiary HEIR.

In the event that the Testator is married and chooses to make an individual Will in which he or she appoints an HEIR other than the spouse, it must be taken into account that the Common Property (those assets acquired during marriage) that he or she inherits to that person other than the spouse, will not include the 50% that by law corresponds to the spouse.
