WILL AND ESTATE DISPUTES

Contested issues in Estates

It is an unfortunate reality that many disputes arise as a result of the administration of an estate after the death of a loved one.

It is frequently the case that one or more of the spouse or children or dependants of the deceased consider that they have not been properly provided for by the last will of the deceased or perhaps, that the last will is not a true reflection of the deceased’s wishes, due to undue pressure while the will was being made, or due to a concern that the deceased did not have mental capacity to make a will at the time.

We have written detailed articles covering many of the issues that arise at this time. Please review them at our blog section.

Whether you are an executor trying to complete his or her obligations under a will, and wish to ensure that your actions are not subject to legal challenge, or if you are a person who is concerned that merely following the terms of the existing will lead to injustice, we have the experience and knowledge to help. Contact Us Today.
