Family Wills & Probate Disputes
Sadly at the time of a bereavement disputes can surface, issues can be further complicated when somebody dies intestate (without making a will).
As the typical dynamics of a family have changed over time this usually allows for others not directly linked to the family to bring claims also. At a time when families should be mourning and pulling together they can be fighting over who gets what, jeopardising the value of the estate, which quite commonly has little if anything left in it, once the legal fees that have been racked up have been paid.
Mediating inheritance and probate disputes not only can resolve such disputes quickly, confidentially and successfully, but can also address family issues, and go someway to mending past fallouts.
