JOY Law – what happens if you get left out of a Will?


Posted By on 13/12/17 at 10:47 AM

On JOY Law, Jack Stuk and I joined the JOY FM team to discuss what options are available to you if you are left out of a family member’s Will.  Specifically, we discussed:

  • the steps you should follow when challenging a Will;
  • how you can demonstrate that you are an “eligible person”;
  • the moral obligations family members have to provide maintenance and support;
  • the time frame for challenging validity; and
  • equality for LGBTI people.
