Commonly Asked Questions

How does Jacque Law handle disputes involving estates from second marriages?

Estate disputes from second marriages often involve complex dynamics, including step-children and assets accumulated before and during the marriage. Jacque Law LLC is adept at navigating these sensitive situations. Our approach prioritizes finding the best solution that honors the deceased's wishes while balancing the rights and expectations of all parties involved, including children from previous and subsequent marriages.

What if the estate left behind does not have a will?

When an estate is left without a will, the distribution process follows the Intestate Succession Act. Our contest will lawyers are experienced in guiding families through this process, applying for a grant of probate or letters of administration as needed. We ensure a fair distribution among the legal heirs, providing peace of mind and clarity during a difficult time.

Is a will still valid if it was witnessed by only one person?

For a will to be considered valid in Singapore, it typically needs to be signed by the testator in the presence of two witnesses, who also sign the will. If a will does not meet this requirement, its validity can be challenged. Jacque Law LLC can advise on the steps to take if you're faced with this situation, exploring all legal avenues to uphold the integrity of the deceased's final wishes.

The treatment of step-children in the distribution of an estate can vary, especially if the deceased did not leave a clear will.

We work closely with families to resolve any disputes and find amicable solutions.
