Contentious Probate and Will Disputes
We have extensive experience in relation to all contentious probate. A Will can be contested on the grounds of:
- “Testamentary capacity” – a person making a will must be of “sound mind, memory and understanding” when making a will.
- Undue influence/coercion – the person who made the will was subjected to undue influence.
- Lack of knowledge and approval
- Wills Act 1837 forgery and fraud
- Inheritance Act Claims
We can advise on whether you have sufficient grounds to contents a will or trust, advise you on your likely chance of success and the costs involved.
