Often, when a beloved family member passes away, they tend to leave a legal document known as a will behind which states all the wishes of the deceased that are related to property and other legal aspects of that person’s life, including aspects related to their businesses, if they own any. While death is an extremely sad situation to be in, the legal ramifications of the will are usually set into effect after 30 days or 31 days after the deceased’s passing, unless specified otherwise, of course. This means that it is important to note that within that timeline, many family members, especially long lost ones, tend to crop up from all over the place, seeking their own trinkets from the life of the deceased. This is especially true when people have a large estate or a huge business to take care of.
Most people turn up after a person dies claiming promises made regarding property or money or other assets and they may also show up with forged legal documents that have fake signatures on them. Furthermore, with newer amendments to the law, a person’s will can be contested by family members if they feel that they have been wronged in any way. This is where a lot of disputes related to wills and probate issues tend to crop up, leading families to forge fights amongst themselves and eventually creating gaps between them that can never be refilled. This is where family mediation comes in.

Mediation first – With children in between the divorce the best way for us to not make it more painful was taking the mediation route.
