If you are thinking about bringing a claim under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants Act) 1975, then here are a few of the issues that will need to be considered.
There are strict time limits for bringing an inheritance claim. It is therefore important that you act quickly in obtaining specialist legal advice.
Inheritance claims must be brought within six months of the date of the Grant of Probate or Grant of Letters of Administration.
While it is best to avoid delay, late claims are sometimes permitted, so it is worth checking with us even if you are out of time.
