Contested Wills & Estates
The law supports the notion that people are free to decide who gets their estate and in what proportions. Sadly, sometimes the provisions of a will do not adequately make provision for an eligible child, spouse or other person who may have a moral (and legal) right of claim.
If you believe you have not received your entitlement under a will or estate (where there is no will), Clear View Lawyers can help you.
