Contesting Wills and claims on estates

Our lawyers can provide advice and assistance when you have difficulties with a deceased estate. Estate disputes can arise in a number of ways including where:

  • person has passed away leaving inadequate or no provision for a family member, partner or close friend;
  • there is a Will however it does not properly reflect the wishes of the deceased;
  • there was undue pressure on a person making a Will that resulted in a person receiving more under a Will than would otherwise be the case;
  • a Will has been made by a person who didn’t have legal capacity to make decisions about the distribution of their assets; or
  • executors or administrators are not properly administering an estate and protecting the interests of beneficiaries.
