Contentious Wills & Estates

Dealing with the death of a loved one is a traumatic and distressing experience. Unfortunately, issues can sometimes arise about the will, or the way their affairs are to be handled, and which require sensitive handling.

Wills can be challenged in a number of ways, with reasons including lack of necessary understanding, undue pressure, neglect of reasonable provision for dependents and mistakes in the Will. Disputes can also arise where there is not enough money to pay all of the gifts mentioned in the Will or if beneficiaries of the Will do not think that those administering the estate are doing their job properly.
