Do you feel that you have been shortchanged in your inheritance? We can help you determine whether you may be able to contest a Will.
We can sometimes apply for a Will to be determined as invalid. Some of the reasons why a Will may be invalid include:
- The maker of the Will did not have mental capacity at the time of making the Will.
- The maker of the Will was unduly influenced in making the Will and the Will did not reflect the maker’s true wishes.
- The Will was not witnessed by two witnesses at the time the maker of the Will signed the Will.
- The circumstances of the maker of the Will had changed significantly after the Will was made and there is no updated Will.
- The Will does not provide for a dependent of the maker of the Will, i.e. a child, grandchild or spouse of the maker of the Will who was dependent on him or her financially (family provision claim).
It is important to seek legal advice as soon as possible about contesting a Will. Strict time limits apply.
