Contesting A Will

Understanding the Law

The law generally recognises a person’s right to make a Will that is unfettered by the normal constraints as to what is fair. However, this situation sometimes leads to a grossly unfair scenario which can leave valued members of the family without any benefits. A will lawyer can help you understand the situation better.

What are the key considerations when contesting a will?

01
Whether or not the situation is grossly unfair.
02
Whether there are financial needs of “family members”
03
Whether the deceased had the mental capacity to understand what he/she was doing.
04
Whether there a dependants who were partially or fully financially dependant upon the deceased.
05
If a deceased did not have the mental capacity to understand what he or she was doing when drafting the document may be a basis to bring a claim to dispute a beneficiaries share.
06
There may be an application made that the Executor was unduly influenced by another person prior to the signing of the document and that it in fact did not reflect that persons true wishes.

When contesting a will there are detailed questions that need to be resolved which consider fairness, the capacity of the deceased, the financial dependency of those parties that may be entitled to some of the deceased’s estate and other relevant matters depending on the facts of each particular matter.

The laws for estate disputes in Australia vary by state, but recognise that de-facto or same sex partners or anyone else who can show that they meet the criteria above, have an ability to contest a Will that is unfair.

Our “No Win-No Fee” option (subject to terms and conditions) is available for Will & Estate Disputes. Our expert team of contesting a will lawyers and will dispute lawyers will assist you without the need for any initial legal costs.
