Often there is not necessarily a dispute but an application to Court is necessary for approval of a proposed course of action, for example:

  • to remove a named executor in a will
  • to gain Court approval of the redistribution of an estate where a minor child is involved, or where a party may lack the requisite mental capacity
  • for the Court’s authority to deal with foreign property which vests in minor children (for example French property passing to minor children habitually resident in England)
