We understand coping with the death of a family member or a friend can of course be very difficult, and is even more distressing when there is a disagreement relating to an inheritance or the validity of a Will.
There are various ways to challenge the validity of a Will after someone has died. For example, it may be alleged that the person making the Will did not understand what they were doing or they may have been pressurised by someone else to write the Will in a certain way to benefit others. Also, there may be a dispute about the Will being prepared incorrectly.
There is also another type of claim where the person who died had either a financial or moral obligation which they failed to include in a Will or did not make a Will to honour those obligations. For example, a spouse or partner failed to leave adequate financial provision for the surviving spouse, partner or child or friend, when promises were made to benefit that person.
There can also be disputes with the Executors, Administrators or Trustees who are responsible for administering an estate and there are claims that they have not fulfilled their obligations.
