Definition of HEIR, IRREGULAR


HEIR, IRREGULAR

In Louisiana, irregular heirs are those who are
neither
testamentary nor legal, and who have been established by law to take the
succession. See Civ. Code of Lo. art. 874. When the deceased has left
neither lawful descendants nor ascendants, nor collateral relations, the
law calls to his inheritance either the surviving hushand or wife, or his
or her natural children, or the state. Id. art., 911. This is called an
irregular succession.
