Wills & Inheritance Disputes - Contentious Probate

List Image

    Bartons are able to provide sympathetic assistance with a wide range of cases including:

  • Claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependents) Act 1975.
  • Disputed Wills based on allegations of mental capacity.
  • Wills disputes based on allegations of undue influence.
  • Wills disputes based on allegations of invalid procedure or fraud.
  • Disputes involving Executors or Trustees.
  • Disputed Powers of Attorney.
  • Negligently drafted wills and professional negligence claims.

When a loved one passes away often disagreements can arise between family and friends.

The terms of the Will may be ambiguous, so it is not clear who or what is included and excluded. Sometimes there may be doubt whether there is a Will at all or whether the Will is valid. There may be some family members who were financially dependent on the deceased and they have not received a share of the Estate.

You may need professional help to resolve these issues. Bartons are able to provide sympathetic assistance in a calm and professional manner.

Disputing an estate is a complex area of law and it is important that you seek expert advice. We can explain things clearly and in the plainest language. All options, costs and likely timescales will be discussed prior to any work being started.

We combine the skills of our dispute resolution team with our private client team to ensure that the advice you receive covers every aspect involved to ensure that the best solution is reached.
