Thinking of Challenging a Will?

Book a free 30 Minute initial consultation.

There are many reasons why you may consider contesting a Will or bringing a claim against an estate, for example:

  • You may have been left out of a Will, a Will may make insufficient financial provision for you or there may be no Will at all.
  • You may be concerned about the circumstances surrounding the making of a Will:
  • Did the person who made the Will have mental capacity at the time they made their Will? Did they fully understand the terms of the Will?
  • Is the Will valid? Does it comply with the strict formalities for making a Will?
  • Was undue pressure placed on person making the Will to leave their estate to a particular person or to exclude others?
  • Is fraud or forgery involved?

If you are concerned about any of the above, you may have grounds to challenge the Will or make a claim against an estate. Talking to us could be the first step to putting things right.
