Challenging and Contesting a Will

Challenging and Contesting a Will

Have you been left out of a loved one’s Will? You may have a claim.

If a Court determines that you are an ‘eligible person’ and that you have not received provision for your proper maintenance, education or advancement in life by the Will of the deceased, then you may challenge the Will of the deceased. A successful challenge will result in a Court order that gifts a portion of the estate to you.

An eligible person is usually a family member or a dependent. You should note that an eligible person only has 12 months within which to contest the Will. This is a strict time limit and it is important to obtain legal advice early. Simply contact us online or give us a call.
