Estate Dispute

Although money is probably not the most important thing on your mind following the death of a loved one, if someone does not receive what they are entitled to this can seem unfair and could possibly result in an estate dispute.

When a loved one dies we certainly do not expect to find ourselves in the middle of an estate dispute. The death of a relative or loved one can be distressing enough without having the added stress of an estate dispute.

Hattons Will Offer Sensitive Guidance When Dealing With Your Estate Dispute Case

Hattons have extensive experience in dealing with estate dispute cases and can offer sensitive guidance whilst trying to minimise any disruption and upset at what is already an emotional time.

Hattons understand how an estate dispute claim will involve family members and need to be dealt with sensitively and sympathetically.

We also appreciate that the bringing or defending of a claim of this nature can be very stressful and emotionally draining. However with the help of a solicitor, in some cases, an amicable agreement can be reached quickly to resolve the estate dispute.

Unmarried Partners Often Find Themselves in an Estate Dispute

A common situation that can lead to an estate dispute is when partners are unmarried or have not registered their civil partnerships and one of them dies without leaving a will. In these cases the blood family will have priority rights over the remaining partner. The best advice we can give to avoid an estate dispute in this situation is to ensure that you and your partner have wills in place.

Our Estate Dispute Solicitor Can Visit You At Home

We understand that when people become embroiled in an estate dispute involving wills or other inheritance issues, these matters are often very emotional and difficult.

What's more, we can also visit your home for a small fee, meaning that clients who struggle in leaving the house can receive the advice and support they need in the comfort of their own home.
Whatever your circumstances, Hattons will endeavour to make your estate dispute as straightforward as possible.
