Challenging a Will
Will disputes have become quite common, particularly with the rise of do-it-yourself will kits and the changing nature of Australian families. Our estate lawyers have vast experience in family provision applications, general claims against deceased estates and disputes over the validity of wills. Importantly, we are able to resolve more than 95% of cases before a court hearing, with particular emphasis on representing clients at mediations to resolve disputes. Of course some claims ultimately need to be resolved in court where we have a strong track record of success.
If you have a close relative, friend or partner and have not been provided for in their will, you may have an entitlement to part of their estate. Unfair wills can be challenged and most cases settle at mediation, often with your legal costs paid by the estate. Strict time limits apply, so call us today for an obligation-free discussion.
