The very private life of Robin Williams and his family is getting a lot of publicity they probably never wanted because the comedian’s third wife (of three years standing) is claiming a share of the memorabilia, awards and collectables he accumulated over a forty year career in the entertainment industry.
Robin Williams made a Will that stipulates how he wanted his Estate to be split up and stated that he wished his children from his two previous marriages to have any jewellery, memorabilia and other items in his main family home.
Leaving aside the question of whether you think the claim is fair or not, the case is a reminder that family disagreements are not uncommon when someone has died.
A good Will can avoid a lot of those disagreements from getting anywhere; but if there is an argument to be had over a Will it is worth seeking out a Solicitor who is a member of ACTAPS (Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists) for the best advice, whether you are bringing or disputing a claim against an estate.
