Commonly referred to as contesting a Will, a Family Provision Claim is when a family member and/or ‘eligible’ person was unhappy with how assets were dictated to be distributed in a Will.
You can make a family provision claim if you:
are an 'eligible person', and
have been left out of a will, or
did not receive what you thought you were entitled to receive.
A family provision claim must be filed with the court within 12 months of the date of death (where the deceased person died on or after 1 March 2009).
