Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
What would you like to know?
Has Probate been obtained?
On overview of the process is described here
The form you need is here
This should set out the case and the claim in full - and you will also need to file a Witness Statement at the same time
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
To be honest these are complex documents which will form the basis of what is a complex claim.
It woudl be better to use a Direct access Barrister to settle them.
However if you are not intending to do so then the particulars of claim must include
Brief details of the property comprised in the estate, with an approximate estimate of its capital value and any income that is received from it; • Brief details of the liabilities of the estate; • The names and addresses of the persons who are in possession of the documents relating to the estate; • The names of the beneficiaries and their respective interests in the estate; and details of the disposition of the Estate under the Will plus an indication of the percentage that the applicant beleives they are entitled to.
The Witness statement should set out all the evidence the applicant will rely on - including that relating to needs
I am sorry but no one should do that - they can only help if they have all the facts and relevant paperwork in front of them
