  2. To provide information or justification of your rights to an inheritance. Batres Genealogy Services is committed to informing you of your rights and assisting you in the various stages of the liquidation of the estate.

Genealogy is the study of family history through documentation that allows the reconstruction of kinship links between people. Genealogical research is based on obtaining and reviewing documentation that facilitates the reconstruction of family genealogy for a specific purpose.

Probate is a legal proceeding by which the rights of the beneficiaries to the property that belonged to the property owner now deceased (de cujus) during their lifetime are asserted.

Succession may be testamentary (where the deceased has drafted a will) or intestate (if the deceased did not draft a will). In cases of intestate succession, the inheritance rights of relatives are determined according to the inheritance law of the country where the assets are located.

BATRES GENEALOGY SERVICES works for well-known international probate companies, banks, law firms and notaries who require our genealogical services for heir tracing in South America.

BATRES GENEALOGY SERVICES is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists (Salt Lake City, Utah, USA / www.apgen.org), where you can corroborate our expertise in this field. We have 26 years’ experience in successfully connecting heirs with their legitimate rights.

In our first contact, we will verify that we are in contact with the correct family by asking some questions that will allow us to verify our genealogical hypothesis.

Based on some specific dates and according to the inheritance laws in force in the country where the inheritance is located, we will verify whether you can be deemed a beneficiary within the family genealogy.

Our Personal Data Policy ensures that your personal information will only be used for the purpose of appraising your inheritance rights under applicable laws.

When a person dies without a spouse, children or living parents, a genealogical reconstruction must be realized to locate relatives who qualify as beneficiaries of his or her estate. That’s why, in some cases, the beneficiaries do not have a close relationship with the deceased or were simply unaware of their existence. Genealogical research makes it possible to locate them.

The inheritance claim can be initiated by the State or by a creditor of the deceased. It can also be initiated by a relative who does not know the whereabouts of the remaining beneficiaries.

If it is determined that you and/or any of your family members may be considered beneficiaries, a legal action to must be filed to ensure that your inheritance rights are validated. We will advise you in this regard, providing you with all the necessary information.

Prior to the filing of the beneficiaries to the estate, only an approximate value of the assets will be available. The exact value of the assets is established just prior to the distribution of the assets since it is difficult to establish beforehand the expenses or taxes to be deducted from the total value.

Debts are not inherited. The inheritance is initiated with “benefit of inventory”. In the event that the debts exceed the value of the assets, there will be no assets to distribute, but heirs will have no payment obligations of any kind to the parties involved.

In some countries, it is necessary for all heirs to expressly accept or renounce their inheritance rights. In other countries, if an heir fails to take a position, their funds are held for a period of time by the administrator of the estate and then passed to the state treasury. We will inform you in detail about your case.
