Contested Wills & Probate

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 a free initial consultation at our offices so we can fully understand your matter. Our lawyers combine thoughtful and intelligent advice with a highly personable approach, providing each of our clients with a completely bespoke 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.

Grounds for contesting a Will? 

Our solicitors have many years experience in contesting Wills and Probate matters and represent clients who feel they have been unfairly cut out of Wills in claims against the estate.

There are several grounds for contesting a Will, which include:

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