Protect & Recover Your Expected Inheritance
In California, you may have a claim against anyone who “intentionally and wrongfully” interfered with your expected inheritance, even if you are not specifically provided for in a written instrument. A claim must meet the following:
- You had a reasonable expectation to receive an inheritance;
- A third party intentionally interfered with that expectancy;
- The third party’s interference was wrongful;
- The wrongful activity was directed at the decedent;
- There was a reasonable certainty that you would have received the inheritance but for the wrongdoer’s actions;
- You have no other remedies at law;
- You have sustained measurable damages.
