What are Family Provisions?

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.

You should contact a solicitor as soon as possible as action needs to be undertake preferably before an estate is administered. Action also needs to be taken before the limitation period is passed.

Do I have to go to Court?

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.

Is it a long process?

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.
