Contesting A Will

Dealing with the death of a family member or someone close to you is always an emotionally difficult process, which is why you need an experienced solicitor to help deal with probate, distribution of the estate and contesting a will with the minimum of fuss. It is even more distressing if you think that the will is unfair, or if there is something wrong with it.

Are you eligible to make a claim?

To make an Inheritance Act claim, you will need to have been related to the deceased in one of the following ways:

  1. You must be a husband, wife or a civil partner of the deceased, or co-habitee with a minimum of two years cohabitation
  2. You must be a former wife, husband of the deceased, or a civil partner of the deceased who was receiving maintenance and has not entered into a new civil partnership or remarried
  3. You must be a child of the deceased or an adopted child of the deceased
  4. You must be a person who was treated as a ‘child of the family’ of the deceased
  5. You must be a person who was partly or wholly maintained by the deceased immediately before their death

If one of the above criteria is met, then you must be able to answer ‘yes’ to the following three questions:

  1. Did the deceased live in England or Wales?
  2. Is the date of the Inheritance Act Claim within 6 months of the date of grant of representation*?
  3. Does the estate have a value of more than £100,000?

*The grant of representation is a document issued by the Court which gives permission to those named to distribute the deceased’s estate.  It is commonly called a Grant of Probate or a Grant of Letters of Administration.

Probate

Probate can seem quite complex, particularly at times of great personal stress and sorrow. Let Kelsall & Company Solicitors take the pain of dealing with probate away from your day to day life at a time when legal matters are the last thing that you want to have on your mind.

Whilst probate can be a relatively simple and smooth process, occasionally it is not. Complex cases, involving sudden bereavement, where no provision or will is in place can leave a tangled and complex web that needs to be untangled by skilled and experienced solicitors. But skill and experience in probate is not always enough.

That’s where Kelsall and Company Solicitors come in. We have a wealth of experience in dealing with both simple and complex probate cases, and are experts in legal, accountancy and administrative fields, providing a seamless service that removes the stress and pain from the process of dealing with probate for your loved ones.

Clinical negligence

Clinical, or Medical Negligence, is an act or omission by a healthcare provider which deviates from their accepted standards of practice. This could be for something as major as an operation or even just a minor procedure.

If you feel that you have been let down in any way by your healthcare provider, then you should contact us today.

Claims for compensation in medical, or clinical negligence cases can be complex and appear quite daunting to the average member of the public, particularly when medical or clinical negligence has affected you or your loved ones directly. That’s why you need to instruct an experienced solicitor who has your best interests at heart, to help you to pursue a claim.

Medical negligence might not just leave you in slight pain, your quality of life might suffer greatly, or you might even find yourself incapacitated. Clinical negligence might stop you from working or mean that you find yourself needing to find alternative employment due to a resulting disability. If you are a victim of medical negligence, then you may need to make a claim to help pay for medical bills, ongoing support and healthcare or loss of earnings.

Whether you need to pursue a claim against a doctor, their employers or another healthcare professional, call Kelsall & Company Solicitors on 01244 320610 or fill in our contact form and request a free call back today.

Stress At Work / Bullying

Bullying and harassment may occur in any walk of life and at any age, whilst stress is ubiquitous and present in almost every field of work.
