In part one of this two-part blog series, the estate lawyers at Kushner Law looked at the case of the Atrill Estate, 2018 BCSC 350. The case centered around a will that named a predeceased wife as the main beneficiary. One son, Ian James, also deceased, had been omitted from the will. However, Mr. James had three children, including one who had been adopted out. The court then sought to establish what, if any, claim Mr. James' children had on the estate.
