It was documented in a divorce petition.
They have produced a copy of the divorce petition and a note written by my Father saying that when he dies he will leave the house to these two children. We believe our Father was under some duress when he wrote the note.
There is a hearing set for tomorrow in respect of the two adult claimants' claim that their Father's will has not made reasonable provision for them. The above question relates to the threat of another claim contained in a letter received today citing supposed breaches of trust by the Estate's Executrix ( all of which can be rebutted ). The Executrix feels she should tell the judge tomorrow that she has received this notice of further claims. The timing seems designed to intimidate. Would she be right to inform the judge of receipt of this further claim since one impacts on the other?

Please re-read the above. The last sentence is a question. i.e. Would the Executrix be right to inform the judge of receipt of further claim as the second claim ( letter received today ) impacts on the initial claim which is being heard tomorrow?
