    It frustrating as she will not give an accepted figure to negotiate from, she has had hardly any contact with my Mum, Dad or myself, since she went to Uni (most of which which Mum and Dad funded) over 40 years ago, and I know Mum and Dad felt hurt by this, so theoretical I know I have a strong case, but she is my only family, and I would like to be as fair as possible, but on the other hand, I know Mum didn't want her to have anything at all until I talked her in to leaving her something in her Will, even this was in front of witnesses who have made statements.

    So Sad, so really Sad.

    The obvious way forward is not litigation.. Who will gain by litigation? The lawers, no one else.

    You seem to have tried everything.
    If she will not respond to overtures about mediation, if she won't even tell you what she wants, how the hell are you supposed to satisfy her.
    She appears intent on trying to reduce the estate by litigation, but that can backfire on her.

    I can understand why your solicitor is saying let it proceed, I'm sorry but cannot see that you have any alternative course of action

    Thank you have put my mind at ease a little.... Its just so frustrating, I haven't got time to grieve and even though my sister has said she doesn't want to be there to scatter mums ashes I feel I can't until this is all sorted. I just want to lay my gorgeous Mum to rest!
    Is there anything else you feel I could try?

    sorry, but right out of ideas.
    I doubt you have any alternative but be guided by your solicitor.
    There is only so much you can do, and if your sister is being deliberately uncooperative you will not overcome her intransigence.
    I hope you find a solution soon.

    Well, warning served and an appearance made and its now been 2 weeks since my solicitor wrote to my sisters solicitor stating that we know Mums Will is valid and my sister has provided no proof of evidence for Mums lack of capacity, I have also stated that I am willing to have telephone mediation but it should also involve my niece as she is affected by any decisions made too, but we have heard nothing whereas before I had a solicitor involved I was getting 3 emails a day.
    Is there any other angle you think I could come from to get this sorted please?

    Trying to sort a problem with someone who does not respond in a meaningful manner is an impossible task!

    It looks as if you will now have to issue a claim so that a judge will decide.
    @Peridot will have more guidance on what that entails in practical terms
