Alexandra and Paul Hewitt act for Mrs Bhusate in her claim for financial provision from her late husband’s estate. In the particular circumstances (summarised here) in the judgment of Chief Master Marsh) Mrs Bhusate has been allowed to bring her claim more than 25 years after her husband passed away.

In Wells v Chorus Law and Others [2018], Alexandra and Paul Hewitt acted for the successful defendant in the first ‘child of a single parent family’ 1975 Act claim, ensuring that the Judge was not persuaded the claimant was ever part of a family and therefore was not able to bring a claim.
