Now the spouses can conclude hereditary contracts and make joint wills. They will be entitled to bequeath to any persons the common property and property of each separately.
It is noted that the testament will lose its validity in case of divorce or recognition of the marriage invalid. In this case, one of the spouses at any time, including after the death of the second, will be able to make a subsequent testament or to cancel a joint one.
In addition, the document prescribes the construction of a hereditary contract, which the testator will be able to covenant with any of the persons. In the contract it will be possible to register the duty of the heirs to perform any actions in order to fulfill his will.
The law should enter into force on June 1, 2019.
