Contentious Probate

There are unfortunately many ways in which a deceased’s estate can turn contentious, for instance when:

  1. A beneficiary of an estate feels that the executors are not providing them with full and timely information, leading them to lose faith in their independence.
  2. Someone feels that they have not received all that they believe they are entitled to from a deceased’s estate.
  3. A deceased’s Will has not been drafted correctly, leading to an outcome the deceased had not intended.
  4. Concerns are raised about the validity of a Will.

At Humber Law, we can help bring clarity at what will often be an emotional and stressful time.

Often, the first step is to quickly investigate what has happened, and what we feel should happened.

We can help piece together a clear picture of the facts, which will then enable you to make an assessment as to whether there is an issue that needs to be addressed or not, and if so, the cost implications of trying to deal with that issue.

We work very closely with leading Chancery barristers in London, who are at the cutting edge of what is often a fast-moving area of law, to ensure our clients receive the most up-to-date advice in light of the Court’s view at the time.

If you feel that something is not quite as it should be with a deceased’s estate, whatever the reason, please do Contact Us to have a no-obligation initial discussion and talk things through. We will give you our gut feeling as to whether there is something to explore further, and if so, we can then arrange a face-to-face meeting to discuss things further.
