Contesting a will and inheritance claims

There are occasions where individuals are disappointed to find that they are not included in the deceased’s will, even though they felt they had a right to be provided for.

While the basic legal position is that an individual can chose to whom they leave their money, there are many exceptions to that rule, particularly regarding dependents. Problems can also arise with the validity of a will or the meaning and with the conduct of the administration of the estate.
