Disinherited Children & Spouses

 Estate Litigation Services in Vancouver

Spouses and children of a deceased may apply to vary the terms of the will if they are disinherited, or if they receive a smaller share of the estate than appears to be just and equitable. Factors that may be considered include:

  • The nature of the deceased’s relationship with the applicant spouse or child;
  • Whether the deceased’s intentions in the will appear to be rational;
  • Whether the deceased gave the spouse or child significant assistance or gifts during their life;
  • Whether the spouse or child provided adequate care for the deceased;
  • Promises made to the spouse or child;
  • Misconduct by the spouse or child;
  • The needs and standard of living of the spouse or child; and
  • The size and nature of the estate
