Customer: replied 18 days ago.
let's keep the conversation via the chat for now and later I will call to conclude the case
Reviewing a court document and Drafting the defence is a premium service. There is an additional fee and JA can give you their quote. I can review and give you an indication  of what your defence is but to assist with drafting I will then advice for the offer to be sent.

in the interim I can advise that unless the deceased was in Scotland, in England and Wales the testator is free to bequeath his assets to anybody they wish and they could disinherit a spouse. You can challenge the application as long as there is evidence that they had the mental capacity to execute the Will without any influence.

Any follow up please do not hesitate to send your message. We are always glad to assist and clarify if you return for further guidance. All the best
