Question of the Day on "In Louisiana, is a parent forced to give his entire estate to his children?"

Answer:  Forced heirship applies when a child is under the age of twenty four, or if a child is permanently disabled (either mentally or physically).  A parent is only required to give part of his estate to a forced heir – -one fourth of the estate to one forced heir and one-half if two or more forced heirs.
