Q: What factors are considered in determining whether an adequate provision has been made?

Depending on the jurisdiction, a number of factors will be considered in determining whether adequate provisions have been made from the estate. However generally speaking, the considerations may involve matters such as the relationship between an applicant and the deceased, competing claims amongst the beneficiaries, the size of the estate, the financial needs of the relevant parties, and the character of the applicant may be just some of the matters that a court may take into account.

Family provision law can be extremely complex. If you need any assistance with such matters, please contact a lawyer who will be able to help.
