We have the expertise to advise you in cases in which someone dies and a dependant does not receive sufficient financial provision from the decease’s estate.
We have expertise in advising in relation to the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975. The Act can give rise to a claim against the estate of the deceased. Claims can be made on behalf of adults or children and we will advise you on the merits and the best way forward.
If you are thinking of making such a claim you should act quickly otherwise you can be barred from doing so. We will advise you more clearly when we know the facts of your case.
In many cases we are able to reach an amicable settlement between the various parties. Often the parties are members of the same family and it is in their interests to reach an agreement without litigation.
