Probate and Will, Trust & Estate Disputes

Claim under the Inheritance (Provision for Family & Dependants) Act 1975

We acted for a charity as the main beneficiary under the will of the deceased. The deceased’s girlfriend brought a claim against the estate under the Inheritance Act 1975 as a financial dependant. She had cared for the deceased in the lead up to his death and allegedly he had intended on changing his Will to add her as a beneficiary under it.  The claim was defended but we were able to successfully negotiate through correspondence a settlement in the best interests of our client without the cost of them having to defend court proceedings.
