Client was not married to intestate deceased, and they have a minor child together who is entitled to the whole estate on statutory trust. Client can apply for grant with someone else as parent of minor.
However client also wants to make an inheritance act claim against the estate and there is no one else suitable to apply for the grant. We wish to act for her to make the claim, but there appears to be nobody we can make the claim against other than herself.
Can my firm apply for a use/benefit to18 grant as well as make the claim?
