About Estate Litigation and Contesting a Will
A child or spouse of the deceased can apply to the Court to have a Will declared null and void on the basis that it was not executed properly, made as a result of undue influence, or made without the necessary capacity required. If the application is successful, an earlier Will prevails. If there is no earlier Will, the deceased is deemed to have died without a Will, and the Estate Administration Act will apply.
Under the Wills, Estates, and Succession Act, a spouse or child may apply to the Court if they feel the Will of the deceased did not make adequate provisions for them. If you feel that a Will did not accurately reflect the wishes of the deceased, be sure to contact our lawyers for a consultation. Our estate litigation experts can review your case and help you get the results you deserve.
