Contested Wills and Estates

No matter how carefully a person plans for the future, disputes and differences can arise. If you’re challenging a will or protecting a claim, we are the solicitor’s for you.

Whilst many people plan what will happen to their Estates after they die very carefully and make a Will to reflect that, it is unfortunately the case that in certain circumstances there will be beneficiaries or potential beneficiaries who are dissatisfied with the outcome. In these circumstances there are procedures available for such persons to contest the Will and potentially force change to the distribution. Typical examples are; excluded family members or people who were being maintained partially or wholly by the deceased during their lifetime.

At Barwells Solicitors our role is to offer calm, friendly and professional advice. If you dispute any part of a Will, or the entire estate, we can explain what your rights are. We do the same if it is being disputed by another party. Options, costs and timescales will be discussed before we start work for you. Disputing an estate is a complex area of law. In everything that we do for you, we will explain using the plainest language we can. It is our job is to ensure you feel completely at ease.
