Probate is the full process of managing a dead person’s estate. This involves organising their financials, assets, and possessions and transferring them as inheritance – after any taxes and debts required are paid. If the deceased has left a Will, this determines the person that they’ve chosen to administer their estate. They are known as the executor of the Will.

What is a contentious Will/Probate?

Any circumstances which lead to a Will or Probate process being challenged by a beneficiary or an individual who believes they have incorrectly been left out of an inheritance can lead to a contentious Will or probate dispute. Wills are typically challenged on the basis of: Lack of testamentary capacity (under the Succession Act 1965) Conflicts with any previous arrangements made Undue influence when the Will was drafted If no provision was made for the testator’s children (referred to as a section 117 application) In addition to the above factors, Probate may be challenged if there are concerns regarding the caliber of the person given the grant of representation.

In a recent claim, Tallans Solicitors LLP were superefficient and provided great service. I was very nervous coming in to see a solicitor but Orla Shevlin put me at ease straight-away. I found Orla very easy to talk to and knew I could trust her 100%.

I was extremely happy with the outcome of my case… Tallans were able to explain things to me in a way that I could understand. I have no hesitation in recommending Tallans to anyone.

From day one, Tallans Solicitors LLP were transparent, clear and supportive regarding my case. They had a personable yet highly professional way in which they presented themselves. From day one, they were on my side. I will now go to them for all legal advice in the future and recommend everyone to seek advice and services from Tallans in Drogheda.
