Contesting A Will
Finding out that you have been left out of a loved one’s will can be hurtful. Receiving information such as this can be challenging, especially at a time when you are grieving the loss of said loved one. In order to make sure the wrong is set right, it is important to act quickly. When tackling such a difficult and emotional decision, it is imperative that you employ solicitors you trust. If you feel that you are entitled to the assets of a loved one and have been wrongfully left out, you must give careful consideration when contesting a will.
As per the law, is it possible to challenge the validity of a will after a person dies, on the following conditions:
- If the deceased did not have the capacity to make a will at the time it was signed
- If the deceased made the will under the influence of an outsider
- If the one contesting the will believes that they are entitled to receive more from the deceased's estate than stipulated in the will.
Although the law recognises that the right to decide who receives what share of his/ her assets lies with the individual, it is possible for errors to occur. Very often sound reasons to contest a will do present themselves. In such cases, it is important to have competent legal aid by your side.
