Your rights as a sexual abuse or sexual assault victim.

It may seem strange to list sexual abuse or sexual assault under the heading of “grounds” for contesting a will. While you really cannot contest the will on that basis, if you have been the victim of sexual abuse by the decedent, you may be able to file a claim against the estate.
The time limits are extended somewhat for sexual abuse victims. A victim of sexual abuse has 15 years from the abuse to file suit and if that person is a minor, the 15 years starts when they turn 18.
If you have been the victim of a sexual assault by someone who has died, you may want to contact us about your rights.

Zoom type workshops?

In the age of Covid-19. we have been thinking of having monthly or bi-monthly, free, Zoom type workshops where participants discuss with us issues that are of interest to them. There would be no agenda, we would discuss areas that the participants wanted to discuss. Participants could attend by computer, tablet or smartphone.

This would be a public Zoom type meeting so nothing personal or confidential should be discussed. Just general questions. Personal or confidential questions should be asked by using the Contact Us tab above.

If you think we should start having these workshops, please leave your email so we can notify you?

We will notify you if we decide there is interest in the workshops. Thanks for letting us know.
