When a loved one passes away, any family tensions and bad feeling are likely to surface.
Disputes can often occur about how things should be done and what was really meant by any instructions your loved one left behind. If a valid Will was not left, there are more likely to be arguments and problems over the distribution of money and possessions.
Even if a Will was left, there may be conflict over the actions of executors, or anger that a dependant has been omitted from the beneficiaries of the estate.
At this particularly difficult and sensitive time it is important to get expert legal advice at the outset, so that you understand your legal rights and any grounds you may have to take civil action.
