Challenging A Will: Estate Disputes

Estate disputes can come in many forms. For example, we can provide you with advice and representation if a deceased family member has left inadequate provision for you in their will. The applicable legislation is the Family Provision Act 1972 (WA) and eligible applicants include spouses and de facto partners (including former spouses and de facto partners who were being maintained by the deceased at the time of death), children and in some circumstances step-children, grandchildren and parents.

In certain cases, this may lead to a party or several parties challenging a will. Not only can our lawyers aid you in navigating this process, but we can also help you if you are concerned about the validity of a deceased’s will – if the will was made under duress or undue influence, or if the will maker lacked testamentary capacity. Time is of the essence with these matters and we recommend you contact an estate disputes lawyer quickly before a grant of probate has been issued to the executor.

For any queries regarding estate disputes or challenging a will, please contact our lawyers or fill in the above form.
