Keep it legal: Inheritance Act claims

A claim under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975 is a plea to the court to go against the wishes recorded in a deceased person's will and thereby to increase the provision made for the claimant. It is typically brought by a relative of the deceased or by someone the deceased maintained during their life, who asks for the testator's charitable legacy to be reduced or abolished.
