Contesting a will, trust or estate dispute is becoming increasingly common as family networks become more complex. This is a particularly sensitive area of law, however, so it is important you have the right support to guide you through what can be a difficult process. Such disputes may not be pleasant, but they are necessary to ensure assets are distributed as intended.

 

Types of dispute

There are many reasons why a will may be disputed, such as someone claiming that the deceased should have made additional provision for them, the deceased did not have the appropriate mental capacity when they made the will, or someone coerced the deceased into making the will.

Likewise, a person may not be happy with how an estate is being administered, difficulties may be encountered with a trustee, or the misappropriation of funds can cause friction.
