What is a contentious probate claim?

A “contentious probate” is any dispute that relates to the administration of a deceased person’s estate. This can include any dispute where you feel that a Will was not valid or that your inheritance is unfairly being taken from you. It can also include any issues that arise in relation to the interpretation of a Will, whether it is due to clerical errors, mistakes or complex passages that require specialist interpretation.

You have only 6 months from the date of the Grant of Probate to make a claim under The Inheritance (Provision for Family & Dependants) Act 1975, so it is essential you seek legal advice from a specialist contentious probate solicitor as soon as you become concerned about how the estate is being managed. At Lavelle Partners, our team of specialist contentious probate solicitors will help you to understand the circumstances in which you may have grounds to make a claim and provide you with the expert legal advice you need to proceed with your claim.
