Information on the content of the will is sent by the notary responsible for settling the succession. This notary summons all those with a legitimate interest to a hearing at which the will is read aloud. If one of the interested parties refers to a fact (i.e. a will) which was not adjusted during the probate procedure, and this fact leads changing the order or the title of succession, he/she has a period of one year in which to contact the notary responsible for settling the succession. After that, he/she will be able to approach the court.
