Inheritance Act Claims Lawyers in St Helens
You may be able to bring a claim under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975 if you feel that you have not been left enough in a will, or have been left out completely.
The Inheritance Act specifically assists those who find themselves in a situation where they find themselves unaccounted for in the will of a loved one who has passed away. A successful claim can result in the whole estate of the deceased being redistributed, making allowance for yourself and granting you the inheritance that you deserve.
You can bring a claim under the Act if you are:
- a spouse or civil partner
- a former spouse or civil partner and have not remarried
- children and other people treated by the deceased person as children
- someone who has cohabited with the deceased person for two or more years immediately prior to their passing away
- those who are financially dependent or being financially maintained by the person who has died
