Contentious probate is a dispute which arises following the death of a person who has left assets to be inherited by beneficiaries to their estate.
Assets may have been left to be distributed in accordance with a Will, or the person who has died may not have left a Will at all, in which case the rules of ‘intestacy’ will apply.
When someone close to you passes away, you will want to see their assets distributed fairly. Losing a relative or friend can be hard to take and this can be all the more difficult when conflict arises over how their estate should be shared out.
We understand the sensitivities involved when disagreements surface over probate and inheritance claims.
