Disinherited Children and Spouses
we work smart and fast to get what you deserve.
Disinheriting a child or spouse in BC is allowed under the law. However, that person is still legally required to ensure that their spouse and minor children are provided for satisfactorily. In some cases, they may also have obligations to adult children.
As a child or spouse who’s been disinherited, either partly or wholly, you’re entitled to challenge the terms of a will, and apply to have the will varied by the courts.
Get the help you need by the time you need it.
In BC, a court can vary a will and re-distribute assets to spouses and children so that they receive a fair share of the estate. However, your claim needs to be done within 180 days from the “Grant of Probate.”
Given the deadlines and complexities associated with these procedures, legal representation is essential. Helpforme will assist you to navigate the court system, as well as providing the skill, speed and support needed to prepare the documents and detailed evidence that will need to be presented.
