It is a sad fact of life that disputes following the death of a loved one are increasing. This is partly because of the framework of modern families in which parties may prefer not to marry or may be involved in same sex relationships or may have step children.
Disputes can arise because the deceased did not make a Will or did make a Will but not provide for someone they ought to have.
Disputes can also arise if Executors or Administrators of an estate do not handle the distribution of the estate efficiently. Certain individuals who feel aggrieved by not being included in the Will or if the estate is not being administered efficiently should take advice immediately.
There are time limits which must be adhered to for claims and certain categories of individual who are able to make a claim. It is vital to seek advice at a very early stage if a claim is to be successful.
At Martin Kaye we have a number of lawyers who are experienced both prosecuting and defending claims of this nature. We have for many years handled cases generated through the website "contest-a-will.co.uk".
