An incomplete or ill-considered estate plan increases the risk of the estate being subject to a dispute after death. This is particularly the case where an estate plan has been made shortly before death.
The last few years have seen disputes involving estates move well past the traditional challenges of seeking a greater share of the estate, with an increasing number of disputes around capacity, informal Wills and even claims relating to broken promises.
Disputes about deceased estates are becoming more frequent and the consequence of these challenges is that the deceased’s estate plan is compromised in some way, often after significant costs are incurred.
In this webinar, we will use examples drawn from our files so that you can:
- take steps at the planning stage to make an effective estate plan
- identify and manage the risk of an estate dispute when preparing an estate plan
- be aware of the types of challenges that can be made to a Will or an estate after death.
This webinar is highly recommended for:
- family law advisers
- estate planning advisers
