Contentious Probate

At Brighouses our specialist team can assist in one of the most complex areas of law namely Contentious Probate. Cases of this nature can become very expensive if taken to Court and it is our aim to try and negotiate settlements economically out of Court if possible.

Frequent areas of dispute are:-

• Whether the Will is valid.
• Whether adequate provision has been made for beneficiaries or non- beneficiaries.
• Executor’s duties.
• Intestate estates (i.e. with no Will).
• Insolvent estates.
