Who can make a claim for reasonable financial provision from a deceased person’s estate?
The Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975 allows certain people to make a claim for reasonable financial provision from a deceased person’s estate, but only if circumstances permit it.
The categories of person who can make a claim under the Inheritance Act (subject to certain exceptions) are as follows:
- Spouse/civil partner
- Former spouse/civil partner
- Child of the deceased
- Dependant of the deceased
If you fall into any of the above categories and wish to make a claim against an estate contact Robert Gore now on 01606 74301.
