Can the children of the deceased object to their stepmother being the sole beneficiary of their father's will? | Lawhive - Solicitors & Lawyers Online
Can the children of the deceased object to their stepmother being the sole beneficiary of their father's will?
My dad passed away allegedly left a will which nobody has seen except his partner- she said there was no will up until the day after he passed away. He owned a property he shared with his partner which was in his name only. My understanding is that she is the executor and sole beneficiary therefore her will is written that her children will now be left everything should/when anything happen to her. Would anyone know if I can object or do anything regarding this please? Thank you in advance.

NQ law student and work in the Wills and Probate department in a solicitors. You can contest it, you’ll need a Contentious Probate solicitor. The process is long and expensive and if you wasn’t financially dependant on your father it is likely to be unsuccessful.
