The death of a partner, parent or other loved one is always a difficult time. The pain and stress of the situation are increased with the advent of a claim to the estate or a challenge to the Will. It is even more stressful if a Will, trust or estate dispute arises between family members. Whatever the nature of your inheritance dispute, our team will be able to advise you on your case and discuss what funding options might be available to you. We will advise you on what legal action will cost you, how long it’s likely to take and the viability of your case. 

 

Inheritance disputes

If a relative has died and you are not happy with what has been left for you in their Will, our solicitors can help you challenge it. If you are worried that the Will is invalid for some reason or that yourself or another family member has been unfairly excluded from it, this is something we can help with. There is a provision available to you to make a claim under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975.

 

Can I make a claim under the UK Inheritance Act?

You can make a claim if you are:

  • A spouse or civil partner of the deceased

  • A divorced spouse or a separated civil partner of the deceased, if they have not remarried or entered into a new civil partnership

  • Any person who lived with the deceased for a minimum of two years prior to their death

  • A child of the deceased (including children over the age of 18)

  • Anyone who was treated as their child by the deceased person, including adopted children, fostered children, stepchildren and so forth

  • Anyone being cared for by the deceased person prior to their death
