Will & estate disputes

Frequently asked questions

What does the Inheritance Act mean to me?
Legal protection is available for spouses, children and other dependants where a person has died without leaving any or sufficient money for their continued well being. Those who can make a claim are, a surviving spouse, surviving children and a person dependant before death. However, if you are a grown up child, not living at home, with a good job but dis-inherited by the parents, there is no guarantee of success in an Inheritance Act claim.
