Estate Disputes

Debt Guy

    Estate disputes can arise for 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.

    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 had 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.

    For estate disputes where you feel you’ve been wrongfully treated, speak to the legal experts at PK Simpson today.

    Protecting a Will Against Contesting

    The truth is, any will can be contested in NSW. Any person deemed eligible by the courts to make a claim against an estate can do so provided they can prove they have not been properly provided for in the deceased’s will.

    But if you have your will drawn up by a team of lawyers such as those at PK Simpson in Sydney, the likelihood of interested parties or other family members successfully challenging it are much lower.

    Anyone, including a son or daughter, spouse (whether there has been a divorce or not), relatives and others making a claim, an appeal, a challenge or contesting a will must meet these three essential criteria:

    • You must be eligible under the law
    • You must be in financial need
    • You must prove that provision in the estate should have been made for you by the deceased.
