Partition order in the estate of a testator

Partition order – Through the partition order, the testator can change the legal succession in his estate and determine which of his heirs should receive which assets. This allows him to make the order for the division of the estate. It is important to make a partition order specific and unambiguous so that the sale of a property is avoided and, for example, the ordered spouse inherits the property.
