We are also very experienced in dealing with other types of claim relating to estates such as claims for financial provision from a deceased’s estate under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975. This act allows certain categories of person to claim from a deceased’s estate because they have not been left reasonable provision. Those entitled to claim include spouses, civil partners, some co-habitees, children and dependants.
Also we have acted in a number of Court of Protection cases, involving challenges to Powers of Attorney, statutory Wills and care disputes including challenging Deprivation of Liberty Orders sought by Local Authorities.
We offer a concessionary fixed fee for initial advice in this area – please contact us for details.
We also have a mediation service available or can recommend other mediators if we are representing you.
