Reasons To Contest A Will

If you have the right to contest a will, you should carefully consider the likelihood of success before moving forward. Our wills and estates lawyers can help you understand your prospects of success by considering your circumstances and other factors. Some of the reasons you may wish to contest a will can include:

  • proper provision was not made for you in the Will;
  • a promise was made to you that you would be left a specific part of the estate and that has not occurred;
  • there was a clear error or mistake in the Will and a court order is sought to rectify that error or mistake;
  • the Will maker lacked the capacity to make to Will;
  • the Will maker was subject to undue influence.
