Will and Inheritance Dispute Resolution in Preston
Losing someone close to us is one of the saddest events we face in life. It is a situation that can be made worse where that family member has not made provision for you or someone close to you within their will. This can happen for a number of reasons: The will may have been drafted many years ago and is out of date and out of touch with your loved one’s intentions. It may be that someone as influenced your loved one to subvert their will, or simply that your loved one has unfairly left a family member out of their will. The will could have been carelessly drafted by a Solicitor, or be simply be invalid as a legal document.
Whatever the reason, The Claims Partnership can help investigate the Will and advise you and your family as to whether you have a claim.
