Contesting a will or disputing an estate

Contesting a Will

Contesting a Will or defending a Will from a claim is a complex area of law and it usually happens at a time of deep grief and loss, so it is stressful for all concerned. This includes beneficiaries defending their inheritances and for those who feel that they have been unfairly left out of a Will. It is important therefore, that you have the assistance of a lawyer experienced in this area of law. 

Been left out of a Will?

If you have been left out of a Will, or not properly provided for, you may be able to make a Family Provisions claim. It may also be the case that you are concerned regarding the circumstances in which a Will was made and you are concerned that the will maker might not have been capable of making the Will. It is very important that you obtain the correct advice at this stage. 

Making claims against a Will

Not everybody has the right to make a claim against a Will and time limitations apply.
