What right do I have to contest my father's will in Scotland.

Resolved Question:

What right do I have to contest my father's will in Scotland. He and my mother divorced when I was a child. He has never provided for me since I was 9 years old.
I understand that his will leaves everything to my niece, leaving out my 2 siblings and myself and his other 3 grandchildren.
Thanks for any help you can offer.

Thank you for your question.
You and your two siblings can each claim one ninth of his moveable estate, irrespective of the terms of the will.
Moveable property is all estate except land and buildings.
I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
