Under EU regulation 650/2012 you can choose the laws of your home country where you are a citizen to apply on death.
Under Polish law, I understand if you are not married without children, your assets go to your parents (you cannot disinherit parents, unless you fulfill the requirements of Polish Civil Law allowing you to disinherit them). While I believe I would meet these requirements, it provides the disinherited parent an opportunity to contest the will under Polish law.
If you choose your home country's laws under the EU regulation, I understand some of Poland's succession rules will still apply.
1) Does anyone know if Poland's law will override my home country's law related to succession law for parents in Canada? Or am I free to choose how much, if any, to allocate to parents?
Please only informed comments, not opinions.
Ultimately I will consult a lawyer/notary in Poland and a lawyer in Canada, however I am trying to be better prepared before the meetings.
Additionally, not all advisers are equal and may not be sufficiently knowledgeable in such matters, so I would like to be prepared to challenge their opinions.
2) If anyone knows a notary with advanced skill in relation to my situation and preparation of a will, please provide a recommendation.
