London Courts Face Explosion Of Will Contest Cases

Explosion of Will Contest Cases

The evening standard reports that London courts are facing an explosion of will contest cases.

“There has been a huge explosion of inheritance disputes. More people will be aware that they can do something about it when they are cut out of their parents’ will.” “We are seeing an increase in Inheritance Act claims brought by adult children …. claims of this nature will only become more common,”

Ageing Population Cause of Explosion of Will Contest Cases

An ageing population and rising levels of dementia have fueled a sharp rise in will disputes.

“People are living longer and we have a generation of children who are reliant on their parents.”

Some children (and, based on my experience, “friends” and “caretakers”) are taking advantage of the elderly.

The article “warned that a rise in court fees was leading more people to try to represent themselves.” “(T)he end result could be catastrophic for some.” While the court fees are not as high in Texas as they are in the UK, a person trying to represent themselves in a will contest case in Texas may be facing a catastrophe for them and their case.
