Thai claim on UK estate

Hi all, new here so hope this is ok to post.

Just wondered if anyone has any previous experience of a Thai national trying to make a claim on a UK estate?

Not married but together for about 4 years but living apart for the last year.

Will in place leaves estate to UK relatives but probate has been blocked by ex Thai girlfriend.

Thanks in advance.

Hi and welcome to the Forum.

I think you need a lawyer.  For what it's worth, my personal opinion is I don't think a person's nationality will have any bearing on the matter you describe.  I would have thought that the will would trump everything unless the 3rd party has some verifiable evidence that would make a judge think otherwise.
