In these circumstances it might be possible to make a claim under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975 to provide for your needs, or to contest the deceased’s will.
Only people in certain categories (e.g. spouses, partners, cohabitees, children, and dependants) are permitted to claim under the Inheritance Act.
Once it is established that you fall into one of these categories, the court takes a number of factors into consideration, in order to decide whether you may have an inheritance dispute claim.
The complex and often emotionally-charged nature of an inheritance dispute means that this area of law can be overwhelming without the assistance of an experienced solicitor.
