Estate Disputes in Sydney

Debt Guy

    Estate disputes can arise from a multitude of different reasons. If you believe that you’re being unfairly left out of a will, and/or believe the executor of the deceased person’s estate is acting improperly, the proper legal assistance can help you get the right outcome you’re looking for. At PK Simpson, our estate dispute lawyers in Sydney have specialist knowledge and expertise to handle even the most complex of cases.

    A few (but not all) of the potential situations that may lead to estate disputes include:

    • The deceased person not being of full testamentary capacity to understand what instructions they were creating in the will at the time.
    • Undue influence to the extent that the will doesn’t reflect the wishes of the deceased.
    • The deceased having left no will, resulting in the estate distributed by statutory provisions. Problems often arise as this does not truly reflect the individual circumstances of the deceased and the relevant heirs or claimants.

    It’s important to note there is also a time frame in which you can file for estate disputes. In Sydney, this is 12 months after the deceased person passed away. Depending on your circumstances, estate disputes can take up to several months before being heard in courts. This is why we always advise people to seek professional legal action as soon as possible.

    Estate Disputes and Drug Addicted Heirs

    In estate disputes between siblings involving drug addicted heirs, the courts do not consider alcohol and drug addiction as a life choice, but an illness. Therefore, any claims made by such a person will be seen as valid, providing they are eligible on all other counts. The court could find the claimant could actually receive a higher payment due to their illness.

    While they are alive, many Sydney will-makers set up trusts to protect their addicted heirs from themselves or prepare affidavits as to why they have left them out. In family estate disputes, if someone is left out of a will, being drug addicted does not prevent them from claiming family provision from an estate.
