Estate disputes & defence

Making a claim from or defending an estate.

If you have been left out of a Will or believe that you are entitled to something from an estate, you can make a Family Provisions claim under the Succession Act.

Betar Lawyers can apply to the Supreme Court on your behalf where a Judge will assess your case and make a ruling.

Any action needs to be taken before the limitation period has passed and ideally before an estate is administered.

We can also help and advise you if you need to defend a claim against an estate. We will liaise with the claimant’s solicitors on your behalf and advise the best course of action.
