If you want to avoid your family ending up in court when you pass away you need to carefully consider how you look after them in your Will. If a child, or any other dependent feels they have been left out or treated unfairly they have a legal right to contest your Will and make a claim to part of your Estate. The only way to avoid a family provision claim is by making sure these dependents feel as though they have received a fair share or 'adequate provision' from your estate.
Safewill is not a law firm and cannot provide advice as to who should benefit from your Will or the likelihood of a family provision claim. If you are unsure whether someone has a claim upon your estate or if you require advice specific to your situation about how to avoid your Will being contested we recommend seeking independent legal advice.
