Do you think that you have a claim against the estate of someone who has died? If you believe that you should have been included in their Will, or received more under their Will than you did, then you may be entitled to make a dependency claim.
Where the deceased died without a valid Will, the intestacy rules govern the automatic manner in which their spouse, or civil partner, and other close relatives, inherit their estate. If you are not provided for under the intestacy rules, or you consider that the amount you will receive is not sufficient, you might be able to bring a claim against the estate to ensure you receive a share or a greater proportion of it.
The time limit on bringing such a claim is very strict. The claim must be brought within six months of the grant of probate or letters of administration, which authorises the administration of the estate.

Andrew Roberts was highly professional, clear and precise throughout. He made it easy to understand and I’d have no hesitation in highly recommending Poole Alcock Solicitors.
We would like to thank Danielle Roberts for the help and advice she gave my brother when making his will.
A personal thank you goes to Charles Smalley and Helen who were a great help guiding me through the probate system following the death of my good friend.
Very professional…excellent team work in these difficult times
We would highly reccommend Claire. She made the task in hand much more pleasant than it might have been.
All staff were very respectful to my feelings at what was a very difficult time.
