We can help you
Contesting a Will is never easy but if the Will has been badly drawn up, or made under duress or the undue influence of someone else, this can be challenged. If you are to act, timely intervention is essential.
Investigating claims like these is often both stressful and expensive in legal costs. We will give you an assessment about whether the claim is cost effective to pursue bearing in mind the size of the estate and your potential interest in it, as well as the investigations which have to be made. These need to be made quickly as there are strict time limits for some claims, within 6 months of the Grant of Probate for claims under the Inheritance Act.
