Section 117 of the Succession Act, 1965

Under Irish Law children of a deceased person may challenge the will on the basis that the parent failed in their moral duty to make proper provision for the child in accordance with his or her means. If a child is excluded from a will there is a strong chance that the will can be successfully challenged under this Law. There is no guarantee that a court will uphold the challenge however. Each case will be treated separately . There will usually be an assessment of the means of all parties to the dispute. It is highly recommended that you get advice on the matter as soon as possible because there are strict time limits applicable to making such claims. If you leave it too late you may be statute barred.
