Wills & Probate

Making a Will is one of the most important things you will do and it is a vital consideration when preparing for the future of you and your family.

It is a way for you to clearly decide the distribution of your property, money and personal belongings, enabling you to ensure that your assets go the people you love once you are gone. It also allows you to decide who will become the guardians for your children, granting you complete peace of mind that their safety and continued care is given to people you trust.

Give our team a call on 0116 201 8566.

Inheritance Disputes

 

If you were expecting to receive an inheritance from a family member and you did not, it may be possible to make a claim against a deceased person’s estate, or if you believe a relative did not have the correct mental capacity to make a will it may be possible to challenge their will through the courts.

 

Unfortunately when someone passes away there can often be disputes amongst family members, particularly if someone was expecting to receive an inheritance under a Will and then discovers that the deceased person did not leave them anything.

 

It is possible in some circumstances to make a claim against the estate or to have a Will set aside if it is later found that the person who made the Will was not well enough to do so and did not have capacity to make such a decision. If you require any further advice about making such a claim please contact Sarah Spence on 0116 201 8566 or at sarah.spence@dodds-solicitors.co.uk
