Estate Litigation and Will Dispute FAQs
The contents of a Will can be contested in Australia by law if there is good reason. Some of the grounds for contest include:
- The deceased did not have the mental capacity needed to understand their Will at the time it was made.
- There is a later Will of the deceased.
- The Will is not validly made in accordance with the Wills Act.
- It is challenged by family members of the deceased on the basis that it has not made adequate provision for a member of the deceased’s family pursuant to the Inheritance Family Provision Act 1972.
To contest a Will or make a claim against a deceased estate, it’s advisable to contact a solicitor or estate lawyer, like Randle & Taylor Barristers & Solicitors, who specialise in estate litigation and dispute resolution.
Most inheritance disputes (or disputed Wills and estates) can be resolved in an informal settlement conference or pre-action meeting where the parties attend a meeting in person with one of our solicitors to try and resolve a dispute before it proceeds to litigation.
Settlement conferences and mediation are a good option to reduce legal costs associated with an inheritance dispute.
In our experience mediation is successful at resolving disputes at least 80% of the time.
Randle & Taylor Barristers & Solicitors provide legal advice in a variety of areas including family law, sales of business, building and construction law, conveyancing, drafting agreements, wills and estates, debt collection, property law, property litigation, residential leases and commercial litigation.
