Estate Litigation

Estate litigation covers many dispute issues including what members of the public often refer to as “contesting a Will” or “contesting an estate”.

After someone close to you dies, on many occasions, administration and distribution of the estate, according to a Will, goes quite smoothly. But there are times when disputes occur and during these times, you will need a lawyer experienced in estate litigation.

How can we assist you with your estate litigation inquiry?

  • Assisting persons to make claims pursuant to the Inheritance (Family Provision) Act for a share or increased share of an Estate (for example, where you feel you have been unfairly excluded as a beneficiary to a Will)
  • Court applications for an order for a Will to be made by a person under 18
  • Court applications for an order for a Will to be made by a person lacking mental capacity
  • Court applications for the rectification of Wills (where errors have been made in the Will)
