no he was not financially dependent on my mother.
the solicitor dealing with the will says my brother may have a claim under the 1975 inheritance act.
I see him possibly claiming for 2 reasons they are... greed and there are alot of firms out there
who contest wills on a no win no fee basis
as both my brother and I have similar financial resourses and are both in good health [ so no special needs ] is a court likely to uphold
my mothers will?..... and if he does kickoff is it worth taking to a high powered / high profile firm and perhaps seeing if they can act for me after all quality can often prove the best value for money over the long term
