Challenging the Validity of a Will

Losing a loved one is extremely difficult but especially if there is concern about the validity of their Will and whether it accurately reflects their wishes.

There are a number of ways to contest a Will. If you have concerns about any of the below then we can support you through the process and provide straightforward advice to obtain the best possible outcome.

  • Whether the Will is valid
  • If the deceased made the Will at a time when they did not have mental capacity to manage their own affairs
  • If they didn’t know or approve the contents of the Will
  • If they were pressured into making it
  • If the Will was forged

We can also advise you if you are an Executor of an Estate that is being challenged.

Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975.

While a person is entitled to leave their estate to whoever they wish when they die, if you have been left out of the Will or not been sufficiently provided for we can help you make a claim for financial provision from the Estate. Such a claim can be brought by:

  • A spouse or civil partner
  • Children (both minors or adults)
  • A former spouse or civil partner if they have not remarried
  • Someone living with the deceased for at least two years before their death
  • Any person being financially maintained by them

There’s a six month time limit from the date probate is granted for an Inheritance Act claim to be brought, so if you need advice get in touch straight away.

No matter how large or complex an Estate we can help.
