Family Wills & Probate Disputes

Sadly at the time of a bereavement disputes can surface, issues can be further complicated when somebody dies intestate (without making a will).

As the typical dynamics of a family have changed over time this usually allows for others not directly linked to the family to bring claims also. At a time when families should be mourning and pulling together they can be fighting over who gets what, jeopardising the value of the estate, which quite commonly has little if anything left in it, once the legal fees that have been racked up have been paid.

Mediating inheritance and probate disputes not only can resolve such disputes quickly, confidentially and successfully, but can also address family issues, and go someway to mending past fallouts.

Case Studies

The defendants who were 3 other children of the deceased who would have benefited under earlier wills and codicils claimed that their late mother lacked testamentary capacity at the time of that last will, and that the previous will which benefited all of them more or less equally should stand.
