If you have been left out of a Will or think you are entitled something from an estate, then you may be entitled to make a “family provisions” claim under the Succession Act.
On your behalf we can apply to the Supreme Court and have a Judge assess your case. If you are successfully, you will either receive something more from the estate or you will receive a benefit from the estate.
With any litigation, there are always efforts of everyone involved to try and settle a case, rather than going to Court. Our commitment to you is to seek all opportunities to negotiate a reasonable settlement with the other side, rather than going to Court.
It can be. Depending on the size of the estate, the lack of provision and the co-operation or lack thereof from other family members, it can be a lengthy process.
The matter can be shortened where the beneficiaries come to an agreement about a potential claim which can be represented through a Deed of Family Arrangement. If you have a legitimate claim and appoint us, we will advise on the chances of settlement or mediation towards settlement throughout the matter.
We will listen carefully to your situation and provide you with frank and candid advice about whether you have a potentially successful claim.
If you have a claim and choose to instruct us, we will provide you with a step by step guide on the claims process as well as the possible outcomes.
A detailed fee estimate is provided to you. This gives you the peace of mind of knowing exactly what you will pay.
Our promise to you is to provide you with full disclosure of the costs and expenses.
