Today the Government have announced there will be new legislation in divorce law. This new law will update the Matrimonial Causes Act 1973 in due course. It will mean that, in the future when the legislation comes into force, divorcing couples will no longer have to ‘blame’ each other for the breakdown of their marriage. It is hoped the new law will help reduce family conflict.
Our contentious wills and estates team has substantial experience of dealing with a range of disputes both in England and Wales, and internationally.
We can advise you on claims for financial provision, allegations of undue influence, disputes between beneficiaries, disputes in relation to a trust and claims in respect of maladministration of a trust or estate. As well as substantial experience of bringing claims, we also have expertise in defending claims and acting in disputes between executors, trustees and beneficiaries.
We will quickly advise on the options available to reach a solution for you at what is often an emotionally difficult time. We will also provide detailed information on costs and funding options.
We recognise that disputes often involve members of the same family. With a sensitive and careful approach, we aim to ensure that family relationships are maintained.
Our team includes a member of the Association of Contentious Trusts and Probate Specialists (ACTAPS) and members of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP).
