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. Consideration for contesting a will occurs in circumstances in which beneficiaries seek to defend their inheritances and when persons feel that they have been unfairly left out of a Will or have not been adequately mentioned in 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 important that you have the assistance of a lawyer experienced in this area of law.
Not everybody has the right to make a claim against a Will and time limitations apply.
