HiThank you for your questionMy name is ***** ***** I shall do my best to help you.I am afraid that there has been no such change.The Will would not be invalid - however you would certainly be able to challenge the Will in Court and you would be successful.The only recent change development is a Case that makes it easier for estranged children to claim against the estatePlease ask if you need further detailsClare

Thanks I guess the will not being invalid would mean in the end the parties coming to some sort of agreement. Yes?

Expert:  Clare replied 2 years ago.
Either the Parties come to an Agreement or the Court will make an Order , yes
