Probate procedure in Germany – special questions 12

What happens, if I was summoned for the opening of the last will, but could not appear?

There is absolutely no consequence, if you omitted to appear to the opening of the last will, even if you were officially summoned. You will be informed by the court nonetheless about the outcome of the opening, usually by sending you a copy of the last will.
