Inheritance Act claims are so topical at the moment, and this one is particularly interesting, since the payment was made to an ex partner of the deceased, George Michael, with whom he had split some 7 years prior to his death. It really goes to show the breadth of the Court's power/discretion in these cases, which continue to be litigated but inherently unpredictable.

Only yesterday I received a new instruction for a prospective Claimant wife, who had been excluded from her husband's will.
