Contentious probate

With family relationships becoming more complex, whilst estates are becoming larger there is increasing scope for disputes to arise over how the estates will be divided and arguments arise over the validity of wills or as to whether sufficient provision has been made for a family member under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act.

In view of the emotions which are often involved in these disputes, it is very often necessary to resolve them through mediation.

These disputes involve their own set of court actions associated with the process of obtaining probate.
