Losing a loved-one is always an emotional situation. The last thing you need at that time is the additional stress and worry resulting from disputes or problems with their Will.
Disputes over a Will can arise when the document does not make sufficient provision for dependents and other close family members left behind, or when other parties challenge the Will and make a claim on the estate. In both cases the disputes can be distressing to resolve, at a time when emotions are already usually running high.
Seeking expert advice as soon as possible is crucial, as there are time-restrictions and deadlines within which challenges against a Will must be raised. Our team have wide experience in resolving disputes over Wills, and can give you the advice and support you need to make the best decisions for your situation.
