470. If either spouse renounces partition, the share of the other’s acquests to which he or she would have been entitled remains vested in the other.
However, the creditors of the spouse who renounces partition to the prejudice of their rights may apply to the court for a declaration that the renunciation may not be set up against them, and accept the share of the acquests of their debtor’s spouse in his or her place and stead.
In that case, their acceptance has effect only in their favour and only to the extent of the amount of their claims; it is not valid in favour of the renouncing spouse.
