about inheritance disputes
It may be the Will has been written in a way that is legally invalid. However, even if a Will is valid and legally accurate, there are still some circumstances under which disputes can occur, particularly in cases where the family situation is complex.
At Goughs we can help with the following:
- Contesting the validity of a Will
- Claims on estates where there is no Will
- Representing those who have been left out of a Will
- Addressing mistakes made in Wills, or handling cases where a Will has been lost or destroyed
- Handling claims that promises were not honoured in a Will
- Court of protection disputes
- Solving disputes between executors or trustees
- Investigating attorneys or deputies who are abusing their positions
If you think you have an inheritance claim or grounds to contest a Will, it is important to seek legal advice as soon as possible. Contact our solicitors today.
All inheritance disputes need to be handled with sensitivity. At Goughs, we can help you to resolve matters as quickly and cost effectively as possible with a strategic and pragmatic plan.
