When someone dies, people may sometimes be disappointed with the terms of the Will and may want to challenge it. We can provide advice regarding the grounds upon which a Will can be challenged and, where appropriate, raise any necessary court action.
We can also provide advice regarding Legal Rights claims. Legal Rights are peculiar to Scots law and allow a spouse or child to claim a proportion of the estate irrespective of the terms of any Will. We can pursue Legal Rights claims on your behalf and review Legal Rights calculations to ensure you receive your correct entitlement.
We can also provide advice to Executors if a claim or court action has been raised against the estate.
This can often be a stressful and emotional time for those involved. We have the right expertise to guide you through the process and we always strive to achieve the best outcome for our clients.
