Intestacy is where a person dies without leaving a will, or having revoked an earlier will without making a new one. The emotional burden of losing a loved one can be worsened with the stress and uncertainty around what happens with their estate, including an application to the court to seek the appointment of an administrator.
The administrator must distribute the assets in accordance with the laws of intestacy, but what happens if these rules do not provide adequately for one of the deceased’s dependents? Family provision applications can be brought by eligible persons to seek a larger portion of the deceased’s estate.
Pragma Legal’s experienced team is here to help to advise you, and can make these kind of applications on your behalf.
