Deceased Estates

When someone dies, their estate is to be distributed in accordance with their Will (if they have one) or the Rules of Intestacy as outlined in legislation, if they do not have a Will.

Contested Estates

“Where there is a Will, there is a War”…

Luckily this is not always the case, however, from time to time, potential beneficiaries have not been left what they believe they are entitled to, or have been omitted from a Will completely.
