My ex partner of 25 years has died. He had never divorced his previous wife and has 3 children by her. I also had a son by him. His previous family is claiming there is no will and that his wishes were that his wife would get the bulk of his estate and that his 4 children including my son would get a "skim" off the top and that the eldest son was to act as executor. We were always led to believe that he had a will in place and everyone would be taken care of. The eldest son is also a discharged bankrupt. How would we got about challenging this and what is our legal position
We want to know if what the family is doing is legally correct my son is 31 we do not know where the will is and we do not know his solicitor. What is my sons legal position if there is no will
Thank you for reply. What would happen if assets or funds had already been removed from the estate
