The top 3 types of fraud and what victims can do

I have been compiling quarterly round ups of fraud-related cases since 2016. One of the insights this gives me is an idea of trends in the types of fraud that end up before the Courts of England and Wales. In addition to this, my business is often contacted by victims of fraud seeking redress, which provides a closer understanding of what fraudsters are up to and the impact of those actions.

Funerals and feuding families – What happens if there is a dispute over arrangements for a loved one’s body?

The death of a loved one is an incredibly sad and difficult time for any family, and in the vast majority of cases those closest to the deceased are able to arrange an appropriate “send-off” which gives everyone the opportunity to pay their respects and say goodbye. Unfortunately however, there may be situations where the relevant parties cannot agree on the funeral arrangements, or what should happen to the deceased’s body. This blog considers who is legally responsible for deciding what happens to the body and how the Court has approached disputes in recent cases.
