Contested Wills and Probate Claims

The death of a family member or partner can be very traumatic. The financial consequences can be devastating especially if you believe the Will to be invalid.

If this is the case, we can act on your behalf, challenging the Will or the distribution of the estate. We have a team of lawyers that specialise in contesting Wills and Probate matters and are on hand today to advise you on likely redress.

Every matter is different, which is why we offer all new clients a free initial consultation at our offices so we can fully understand your matter and offer the highest standard of advice possible. Our solicitors combine thoughtful and intelligent advice with a highly personable approach, providing each of our clients with a completely bespoke contested Wills and Probate service.

When and why can a Will be challenged? 

Wills can be challenged for several reasons, including if it is unsigned, was not witnessed properly, the deceased lacked mental capacity when it was made, or if you have an issue with the provisions of it. We will take the time to understand your grievance, assess whether you have a case and then advise you on the appropriate course of action, keeping you up-to-date at every stage of the process.

What are the grounds for contesting a Will? 

Our solicitors have many years experience in handling complex Wills and Probate matters and represent clients from across England and Wales who feel they have been treated unfairly and cut out of Wills in claims against the estate.

There are several grounds for contesting a Will, which include but are not limited to:

  • The validity of the Will
  • The deceased lacked mental capacity at the time it was signed
  • The executors or trustees have acted improperly
  • The solicitor that drafted the Will did so negligently
  • The Will failed to adequately provide for family members and dependents of the deceased person
