Can you answer a question. The respondent (husband) died after decree nisi. Decree absolute obviously was never granted. The widow would be entitled to act as administrator of the husband's estate, I know, but before his death, her claim for ancillary relief was dismissed. Does that mean that she can't make a claim on his estate (except for via the Inheritance Family & dependants' Act 1975)?
I'm sorry but I am not able to give advice via this blog.
