Art. 1514.  Usufruct of surviving spouse affecting legitime; security

A forced heir may request security when a usufruct in favor of a surviving spouse affects his legitime and he is not a child of the surviving spouse.  A forced heir may also request security to the extent that a surviving spouse's usufruct over the legitime affects separate property.  The court may order the execution of notes, mortgages, or other documents as it deems necessary, or may impose a mortgage or lien on either community or separate property, movable or immovable, as security.
