Middletons Family Law and Dispute Resolution teams have experience in dealing with Inheritance Act claims, both on behalf of Executors or hopeful beneficiaries.

The Inheritance (Provision For Family And Dependants) Act 1975 is an Act in law which permits a court to make order for the making out of the estate of a deceased person who hasn’t made proper provisions before their death. In this case, broadly speaking, the role usually falls to immediate family or a partner. This typically includes provision for the spouse, former spouse, child, child of the family or dependant of that person.


Marriage will make a will completely null and void unless it has been made in contemplation of the marriage. Divorce will affect the terms of a will substantially. It is therefore important to consider making a will at various stages in your life. Second marriages invite different considerations.

Middletons Family Law team work closely with lawyers in the Wills and Probate department to make sure that you receive the best advice in connection with the preparation of a will, taking into account the needs and requirements of your family as well as the burden of Inheritance Tax.

All clients are encouraged to make a will, no matter their age, financial situation or background.
