Trusts and Estates
Miles and Another v Shearer  EWHC 1000 (Ch)
This recent authority, the latest “adult child” application under the Inheritance (Provisions for Family and Dependants) Act
1975 (“the 1975 Act”), is likely to be seen as demonstrating the increasing reluctance of the court to make awards for financial
provision from a deceased parent’s estate in the case of adult children following the Supreme Court’s decision in Ilott v
Mitson  UKSC 17.
