Thank you Clare.
If probate is to be assigned to a solcitior (which we are in the process of deciding at the moment in order to settle the dispute) do the ashes then have to go to the solicitor so that the final resting place must be agreed? Or does the person who paid the bill retain possession of the ashes regardless of who is given probate responsibilities?
Basically, we want to agree to an impartial solicitor who can settle the estate (finally) but would like to lay the ashes to rest independently, and don't want to go ahead and do that if legally we will get into trouble for doing so..
Hi, thank you.
I want to be completely sure of this:
The solicitor for the other side has said that the ashes form part of the estate and that I must therefore hand them over to the solicitor who will be given administration responsibilities. Is this legally correct? And do I legally have to hand them over as the person who paid the bill?
It all seems to be confusing and very open to interpretation!
