This case illustrates that a child does not need to be financially dependent on a parent at their death to make a successful claim under The Inheritance Provision Act.

It also shows how robustly Charities will defend their claims even though they may encounter large legal bills.

The case does highlight the need to ensure you have proper and correct provisions drawn up in your Will, and these can often only be dealt with by a qualified solicitor.

If you require any assistance with any aspect of your Will, Trust or Probate why not give Susan Hartley a call, she will be happy to help.
