Your parents must give you their final administration report. Once you have accepted this report—which your parents must also give to the tutorship council and Curateur public—they must transfer your money to you. From now on, you have full responsibility for it because you are now totally independent. Congratulations!
Your tutor must give you his or her final administration report and also submit it to the tutorship council and Curateur public, regardless of your property’s worth.
Have you reached the age of majority and your parents still haven’t transferred all of your property to you?
You haven’t received a copy of the final administration report or you think it is incomplete?
You’re dissatisfied with how your patrimony was managed?
You have three years from the date on which you came of age or received your emancipation to sue your parents, dative tutor or suppletive tutor for damages. This time limit can be extended if you are unable to act earlier. The three year time limit also applies if your parents, dative tutor or suppletive tutor are replaced with a new tutor. If you are in this situation, we recommend that you consult a lawyer. You can also visit the éducaloi website .
When you come of age, we’ll send you a letter that presents your financial situation.
