Abstract

This article provides a first commentary and analysis on an important new Belgian law changing many aspects of inheritance law. The rules of indignity are modernized. This implies important changes in the rules of substitution and especially of collation of gifts upon decease. Indignity also has been extended to a patrimonial indignity of sorts, including maintenance claim on the succession and matrimonial property law. Finally the procedural rules for dissolution of a gift based on ingratitude have been simplified and clarified.

We provide a critical analysis concluding that the new Act provides good answers to many issues of the past, notwithstanding some critical points.
