Contesting a Will is a difficult choice, and often occurs at a very stressful time. There could be a number of reasons why a Will may be in dispute, such as:

  • you (or a loved one) were left out of the Will;
  • you were unfairly or inadequately provided for;
  • the administrators/executors of the Will were negligent;
  • the Will was invalid; or
  • no Will was made.
