Estate Litigation

Our expert Estate Litigation Lawyers help clients who have been left out of a Will, are unfairly treated in a Will or have a concern about the validity of a Will.

Death, difficulties and disputes

Unfortunately, there are many situations where a person is left feeling disappointed, betrayed or worse when they learn of the terms of a Will.

A Family Provision Act claim can be made when a person believes they have either been unfairly excluded as a beneficiary of a Will or that what was left to them in a Will is inadequate.

There are also other situations where a dispute over a Will may arise, including where there is concern that:

  • a Will was made fraudulently
  • a Will was made by someone who lacked the mental capacity or was under the influence of another
  • the terms of the Will are not being interpreted correctly
  • the executor should not be allowed to act in the role of executor.

If you find yourself in this difficult position, we can help you resolve these complex issues as quickly and stress-free as possible.

“Remember that someone’s Will is not necessarily final”
