The first question is whether the Will is valid. If the Will is not valid and there are no earlier Wills, the law sets out who will be provided for.
The rules around this are called the ‘rules of intestacy’. This provides for husbands and wives, children and other relations.
If the Will is valid, you may be able to claim under the Inheritance Act. Husbands and wives, civil partners, ex-spouses, ex-civil partners, children, those treated as children, people who live together and those provided for by the Deceased are all entitled to claim.
