How Are Wills Contested?
A will is commonly contested when a beneficiary feels as though he or she has been left out or in some way did not receive all that he or she was entitled to receive. The main issues that present themselves when a challenge is brought include:
- The testator did not have capacity to draft the will
- The strict requirements of the Succession Law Reform Act were not followed
- The testator was unduly influenced by a third party while creating the will
- The testator was tricked into creating the will through fraudulent behaviour
Whether you need to challenge a will or defend its validity, you can rely on our team to provide you with sound advice and experienced representation.
