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.
Contesting a Will in NSW & QLD is allowed by law if there are good reasons based upon a number of matters including:-
In NSW, which is an example of the type of legislation that is available in other states including Queensland, the Succession Act 2006 and the Family Provisions amendments relating thereto governs the questions of fairness and probity when dealing with the wishes of the deceased. It basically involves questions of 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 law for estate disputes in NSW & QLD recognises that defacto or same sex partners or anyone else who can show that they had some or all of the criteria mentioned above has an ability to contest a Will that is unfair.
Our "No Win-No Fee" option (subject to terms and conditions as discussed with each individual) is available for Will Disputes. Our expert team of litigation lawyers will assist you notwithstanding your poor financial position that might normally preclude you from bringing costly legal proceedings.
