Law in a Nutshell

Testators are at liberty to leave their assets to their chosen beneficiaries - up to a point. If a dependent is insufficiently provided for under the testator’s will, an inheritance claim could be on the cards. An independent adult child might even have a claim against their deceased parent’s estate, but any award will be limited. 

What's covered?

The issues that can come with dependency claims, case law examples and what to do in practice with clients.
