Who Can Contest a Will?

The law in this area is complex, and a will can be contested by a wide range of people. Each case will be considered on its own individual facts. However, the classes of people that may contest a Will include:


Individuals or organisations promised an inheritance.

Individuals or organisations who have been disinherited.

Other third parties affected by the present will or a previous Will.

Individuals who are or were related to the Deceased or who were dependant upon the Deceased.

From the outset we will discuss your case with you and advise you as to whether you are able to contest a Will.
