CHAPTER 3. JUDGMENTS OF POSSESSION

Art. 3061. Judgment rendered and signed immediately

A. The court shall render and sign immediately a judgment of possession, if it finds from an examination of the petition for possession, and from the record of the proceeding, that the petitioners are entitled to the relief prayed for.

B. The judgment shall recognize the petitioners as the heirs, legatees, surviving spouse in community, or usufructuary, as the case may be, of the deceased, send the heirs or legatees into possession of the property owned by the deceased at the time of his death, and recognize the surviving spouse in community as entitled to the possession of an undivided one-half of the community property, and of the other undivided one-half to the extent that he has the usufruct thereof. The judgment shall include the last known address of at least one of the heirs or legatees or the surviving spouse, as the case may be, sent into possession of the property of the deceased. The failure to include the address of at least one of the heirs or legatees or the surviving spouse shall not affect the validity of the judgment.

C. A judgment sending one or more petitioners into possession under a testamentary usufruct or trust automatically incorporates all the terms of the testamentary usufruct or trust without the necessity of stating the terms in the judgment.
