Estate Litigation Lawyers, Contested Will Lawyer Melbourne
Dealing with a contested Will? Get the legal advice you need from experienced estate litigation lawyers at David Davis & Associates in either Thornbury or Richmond.
Estate litigation is the result of a challenge to the Will of a deceased person. Our firm not only acts on behalf of Executors and Administrators to defend the Will and Estate against claims made by beneficiaries, but we also act on behalf of aggrieved family members and beneficiaries under the Will to make claims because they have been left out of the Will or have not been given enough money from the estate for their future maintenance and support.
There are a number of ways in which such a challenge may arise, and often our estate litigation lawyers will be required to defend the Will, advise the Executor or Administrator on the duties and obligations when defending a contested estate, or protect the interests of beneficiaries in need.
A Will or intestate estate may be challenged or disputed because:
The Will was created when the deceased did not have the required legal and mental capacity to make a Will;
At the time of making the Will the deceased was unduly influenced by another person;
The Will is poorly drafted and the terms of the Will are unclear;
An eligible person makes a family provision claim because they believe they have not been provided with adequate money for their proper maintenance and support from the estate.
If you’re concerned that you have been left out of a Will or not been given what you are reasonably entitled to under a deceased estate, then you should contact an estate lawyer to help protect your interests. The estate litigation lawyers at David Davis & Associates are regularly involved in assisting parties in estate litigation to provide sound advice on expectations and resolutions in these difficult matters.
If you have estate dispute concerns, contact us for a consultation at our Richmond or Thornbury offices at a time that suits you.
