Probate procedure in Germany – special questions 11

Will the heirs or parties be summoned for the „opening of the last will“?

Usually the probate court does not summoned, in other words: invite, the parties to the opening of the last will, though the law gives this possibility. But since it is a mere formality, there is usually no need to invite them.
