Late fathers estate

Customer Question

after my wife's late father died intestate he left assets to be split equally between herself and her siblings and mother , we have tried for many years to obtain evidence and information as to what they did with the estate, the properties were and are in India as we believe very strongly that one has been sold, we have managed obtained a copy of a power of attorney alleged to be signed by my wife and witnessed by a notary in India we believe. The signature on the power of attorney has been examined by a hand writing expert who believes that there is dependable evidence for the proposition that my wife is not the author of the signature. my wife did not sign the power of attorney and her family who are UK residents own property and business in this country are now dispersing the assets through sale and keeping the money for there own benefit. The power of attorney is dated September 1987, there is no evidence to suggest that my wife has even left the UK in over 30 years. taking into consideration that we only obtained evidence from India in march 2015 as it has been very hard to obtain it with a system of bribery in place as it is there. we understand that there is limitation in these matters would we have a case in this country for fraud against her family?

What is the position on Law of Limitation?

What are the chances of success? if a case is filled in the uk against her siblings?
