Disputed Wills & Trusts
Our experienced team has an excellent reputation for settling complex issues connected with probate, wills and trusts.
We provide expert and understanding advice. This is the key to supporting clients who need to deal with disputes arising from a Will or the management of a Trust or Estate.
If you are unhappy about the terms of a Will or the provisions of an Estate - for example, if you believe you have been unfairly excluded from a Will or left without "reasonable financial provision” - there are steps you can take.
There are a number of ways that a Will can be held to be invalid and it is possible to make a claim against an Estate - but prompt action is often necessary as time limits exist restricting when these types of claims must be brought.
Michelmores’ dedicated cross-departmental team regularly brings and defends claims involving Estates from the very small to the very large. We advise regularly in the following types of matters:-
- Claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975
- Disputed Wills
- Beneficiary disputes
- Financial provision for dependants
- Property issues
- Tax issues
- Trust disputes
