If a loved one has died without leaving a valid Will, dealing with their estate can be daunting. We’re here to help you through the process and make sure you receive the provision you’re entitled to.
When a person dies without a Will this is known as intestacy. The ‘rules of intestacy’ set out who can inherit from an estate. However, these rules may not fully reflect the deceased’s wishes or personal relationships.
We could help you if you are facing problems such as:
Disputes over who should administer the estate
The unmarried partner of the deceased hasn’t been provided for
A child or dependant has not been reasonably provided for
An estranged spouse has inherited the estate or a part of it.
Contesting probate can feel difficult when there is no Will to back up a claim, especially if the estate is particularly large or complex. The rules of intestacy make no provision for unmarried partners and do not take into account any
verbal promises the deceased might have made in their lifetime.
If you feel you’ve been left unfairly out of an inheritance, or you haven’t received the provision you need, we can help.
