[00:24] Has you common law partner passed away without a will? Please note that under estate legislation, there is no entitlement for a common law partner to inherit any portion of the decease’s estate. The common law partner must make a claim for dependency under the common law and to do so within the statutory limitation period. Under the common law, there are cases favoring common law dependents, but a dependency claim should be made in a timely manner.
