Are you a beneficiary of a Will that is poised to go through probate? Do you believe that there was foul play in the creation or revision of the Will? Do you feel that you have been cheated out of an estate?
If you answered yes to any of these three questions, then you may wish to challenge the Will formally before it goes through probate. Anyone who stands to gain something from a Will—including beneficiaries or potential beneficiaries—can formally contest the Will. To do so, though, you will likely want the assistance of an estate lawyer in Perth.
At M 6:8 Legal, our team of estate lawyers has expertise and experience in estate planning, estate administration and contest estates. If you wish to challenge the validity or interpretation of a Will, we can provide you with advice or assistance.
Wills are considered valid until proven otherwise, so contesting a Will is a complicated and arduous process. If you choose to challenge a Will, it will fall on you to prove that the Will is invalid—whether due to fraud, a lack of testamentary capacity, a presence of undue influence or the existence of a second Will. By working with M 6:8 Legal and our estate lawyers in Perth, you can find out whether or not you have a strong case for contesting an estate. If you do, we will help you prepare an approach for formally contesting the existing Will.
