This means that the policy will not form a part of the deceased’s estate, and the beneficiaries of the will (along with anyone claiming Family Provision) will not receive any benefit from the policy.
However, there may be ways in which the policy can instead be included as part of the estate. This is a complicated area of law, and so we advise that you seek legal advice from those with extensive experience in contested wills law. If you are a beneficiary of a will, or are intending to file a family provision claim, our lawyers will be able to advise you on how to best proceed, ensuring the best outcome for you.
We are also unique in offering No Win – No Fee service in the area of contesting wills. We are dedicated to helping you achieve the best outcome, guiding you through every step of the process.
