If you feel the Will of a deceased estate does not fairly provide for yourself and the family circumstances of the deceased you can make a claim to contest the Will. This is called a ‘family provision claim’ and is sought to rectify Wills whereby the Will maker had a moral obligation towards a party whose entitlement is not enough for their maintenance and support.
Our Wills and Estate lawyers are experienced in the complicated process of contesting a Will and can represent you with compassion and professionalism.
