Solving inheritance disputes sensibly

The days, weeks and months after the passing of a loved one can be a very stressful time. It can mean that those grieving act out of emotion and are particularly sensitive to stress. This is why disputes regarding inheritance, especially between close family members, are particularly common.

Before your loved one passed away, it's possible you never imagined becoming involved in a dispute with a close family member. However, this may have, unfortunately, become a reality and you may be feeling sad, stressed and upset. If solving the dispute as well as gaining a fair inheritance is important to you, consider the most sensible ways to deal with such a dispute. The following are some tips to consider when engaging in an inheritance dispute.

Understand your rights

Your relationship to the deceased person may entitle you to a certain portion of the estate, especially if you were their spouse. You should understand your rights and if you have legal standing to contest the will before becoming involved in a dispute.

Learn whether you have legal standing to contest the will

If you believe that the will should be contested because it does not reflect your loved one's last wishes, first make sure you have legal standing. You may have legal standing if you are set to gain an inheritance if there was no will in place, meaning you are the spouse or direct family member, or were mentioned in the will.

Consider the other person's point of view and intentions

It can be so easy to become consumed in your own grief after a loss. This could mean that you fail to see the other person's point of view. Try to see their full intentions before becoming involved in a dispute.

It's important that you are able to get the inheritance that you truly deserve. It can secure your financial future and also help you get closure from the grief.
