This Law provides rules for the making of wills and other matters regarding inheritance. It provides, among other things, that in every collateral succession on intestacy, whether to movable or immovable estate, the rule by which the paternal side excludes the maternal side in equality of degree is abolished. It also provides for devolution of immovable estate on intestacy and amends customary law so as to provide for equality of succession rights of legitimate and illegitimate children.
