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.
