Dependants’ Claims

Will and gavel

If there is no adequate provision for a dependant in a Will, the terms of that Will can be challenged under the provisions of The Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975.  The Court can make provision for those who should have been left something.  Those who are entitled to claim include a spouse, partner, a minor child or someone who is disabled; in addition, others can apply if the Court considers them to be a dependant to whom the deceased had a responsibility to care for and proper, adequate provision was not made in the Will.
