When someone dies if there is a Will the assets of the person who has died will be distributed in accordance with their stated wishes; without a Will those assets will be paid as set out in the Intestacy Rules. For details of the latter see FREE INFORMATION
There are times when a Will, or the impact of the Intestacy Rules, do not adequately provide for those left behind and need to be challenged and, if necessary, resolved by a court. There is a limited category of people who can make such a challenge, and a limited time within which to do so. It is therefore important that you speak to our Senior Solicitor, Charles Maher, at an early stage so he can explain the rules and provide you with the information you need to make a decision. If that is to apply to court if the matter cannot be resolved amicably, Charles will advice and guide you through the process.
Charles works Monday to Wednesday. Call him or any of the team on 01200 422264 or come in to our office in Clitheroe to talk, share a coffee and see if we can help.
