I offer a fixed-fee Will writing service by home visit, depending upon location (France is a very big place!), or via phone/email.
With the insertion of an election to have the succession law of the country of your birth in your new British Will, you can bypass the prescriptive French succession laws. This is under EU Regulation 650/2012 known as Brussells IV.
Living Wills in France:
There has been a recent change in French legislation that means that Living Wills of people that do not wish to be kept alive artificially will become legally binding on Doctors. However, the Living Will will have to be written on an official model and follow a registration process. This has not yet been defined or agreed as the law is so new. Please watch this space for more info as son as it becomes available...

Post BREXIT concerns:
Following the vote, many people have expressed concern about the effect BREXIT may have on the Brussels IV Regulation 650/2012. This will have no effect, whether now or when the UK actually leave the EU as the UK never signed up to the Regulation in the first place and the succession law of the country of your birth does not have to be a member of the EU. So long as France remain a member then the terms of the EU Regulation 650/2012 will be adhered to.
