We act under a no win no fee arrangement in most will dispute claims to include defending claims.

 Contesting a will?

  • Have you been left out of a will?
  • Have you been left less than you were expecting by a relative or close friend?
  • Do you have suspicions about the way a will was drawn up?
  • Are you concerned that your relative was not well enough to make a will?

If you find yourself questioning a will – wondering why you have been left out, or why you were only left a small bequest, we can help!

We are expert will dispute solicitors. We will explain how to contest a will, talk you through your claim and handle your will dispute – usually on a no win no fee basis, wherever you are based, provided the estate is mainly in England or Wales.

There are 2 main reasons to contest a will

  • You think something is wrong with the will or the way the will was drawn up
  • You think you should have been left some or more money in an inheritance

As experienced will contest solicitors, we will listen to your concerns and explain the next steps if you decide to pursue a will dispute.

We will also explain the basis of contesting a will on a no win no fee basis. Funding a will dispute through no win no fee gives you peace of mind as you will only have to pay our legal fees if your claim is successful.

Thank you so much for all your hard work over the last number of months, I really do appreciate what you have done for me. It's kind of strange the feeling that I have now as since January of last year when everything fell apart I have had a massive emotional weight on my shoulders the worry the feeling that at a moments notice my Aunt could have me on the street. All things that led to a version of myself that was a emotional shadow of what I once was. With what you have done you have helped my future and more importantly than that you have lifted the fears of what my Aunt could do of me. And brought fairness to the situation.

COMMON REASONS TO CONTEST A WILL

Although you may believe there is something wrong with the Will, we can often also bring a claim for a large share of the estate under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependents) Act 1975. It’s important to remember that you have only 6 months from the date that probate is granted to bring this claim. If your claim is that there is something fundamentally wrong with the will or the way it was drawn up, there is no time limit to bring your claim, but the longer you leave it, the harder it may be to find evidence to support your claim. For these reasons, you should talk to your will dispute solicitors as soon as possible.

Alternative dispute resolution and your will dispute

Most will disputes don’t end up in court

  • We may be able to resolve the matter through correspondence
  • We may use mediation to resolve your will dispute with the other side

We work with a network of barristers, experts (including forensic old-age Psychiatrists) and mediators to bring about the best solution to even the most protracted and complex will dispute. This may be by means of a negotiation or a mediation. Resolving your will dispute in this way can often be more satisfactory and conclude the process more quickly than a full court hearing.

Whatever your reason for contesting a will, we offer a free claim assessment to get your claim started. Complete the form and we will get back to you with our initial advice about your will dispute. Just provide us with a few key details and one of our will dispute solicitors will get in touch!
