Advancement Legal Meaning and Definition

Here is a simplified definition of the legal term Advancement.

Advancement (noun)

An Advancement refers to any kind of improvement or progression in a situation. In the legal context, it refers to the contribution made towards an intended inheritance (like a gift) during the lifetime of the donator. This 'academic's though as part of the eventual inheritance when the individual passes on. However, the example provided does not provide a good illustration of "advancement" as it seems more related to the act of making an allegation or claim against another party.
