Wills and inheritance can become complicated as families expand through divorce or remarriage. Is it possible to contest a will if you believe something isn't right?

If one half of a married couple with no children dies, it's very probable that their assets will go directly to the widowed spouse.

If a single parent of two children dies, it's very probably that their assets will be split between their children. 

In a family with two parents, one step-parent, one girlfriend, three half sisters, two step-brothers, one half-brother, five grandchildren and one great-grandchild for example, as you can imagine, it's significantly more complex.

Lots of right feet with shoes on in a circle on the ground
