When someone you love dies, you probably will go through a grieving process that includes a heavy amount of sadness and anxiety. During this trying time, if you find out you were left out of your loved one's will, or you believe you aren't receiving your fair share, you may also feel anger, confusion and disappointment. But there are things you may be able to do to rectify the situation.
If your partner passes away and his or her will seems unfair to you, the court – by way of the Wills, Estates and Succession Act – may change the will to provide for you and any children. That law is the same for those who are legally married or those who are common-law spouses who have been living together for at least two years.
