Hi, welcome to the site. My name is Max and I will help you with your question.
Can you tell me the basis upon which she is contesting the will please?
So on what basis does she say she should get more - simply because they were going to be married?
You see, there are only two grounds to challenge a will. They are (a) that the person making it didn't understand what he was doing and (b) there was some manipulation of the person that was making the will (undue influence).
Neither of those sound like they apply in this case.
Would that be right?
Being angry or dissapointmed about the will isn't a good reason to challenge it.
your solicitor is entitled to a share, you say?
Or your solicitor says she is entitled to a quarter share?
Was she dependent in any way upon your father?
Okay - I'm not hearing anything from you that makes me think the will can be properly challenged here.
Overall, I don't believe that there are proper grounds from what you've said to challenge the will.
Does this answer your question?
Is there anything else you would like to ask me?
