Contested Wills & Estates

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, 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.

If you would like to have an initial no obligation discussion with one of our specialist advisors then please do call us today on 01323 899331 and we will be pleased to assist.
