Sometimes for a range of reasons, a person may pass away without updating their Will to reflect their change in circumstance. This may include failing to update their Will following a divorce or having children. If you feel you should have been provided for in the Will of a loved one and you have not, then you may be entitled to make a Family Provision Claim against the Estate provided you fall into a class of people known as “eligible persons”.
Similarly, if you are the Executor of an Estate who has received notice of a Family Provision Claim being made against the Estate we are also here to assist you with the process of defending the Claim and/or negotiating a settlement. The majority of Family Provision Claims are settled outside of Court. To ensure you achieve the best settlement outcome you need to ensure you receive the best advice. At Meehans Solicitors our team of Solicitors are experienced negotiators who can ensure that you receive the best advice leading to the best outcome.
