Will Disputes Campaign

What is a Family Provision Claim?

When someone passes away, their assets such as money or property require a destination. Typically, this is governed by a Will. However, when no Will exists – a state known as ‘intestacy’ – assets are distributed according to specific legal rules.

Unfortunately, some Wills fail to adequately provide for those who truly need it. Alternatively, absence of a Will can lead to deserving individuals being overlooked due to intestacy regulations. If you find yourself in either situation, a Family Provision Claim could be your path forward.

A Family Provision Claim involves applying to the Supreme Court for a portion or an increased portion of a deceased person’s estate. This process is known as seeking an order for ‘Provision’.
