Estate Litigation and Wills Variation Claims
Emotions are strong when a family member or loved one passes away. It can be worse if you feel that person’s will treated you unfairly. Under the law, the provisions of a will can be challenged and varied in certain circumstances. Sometimes the deceased lacked the mental capacity to draft or change their will. They may have been unduly influenced by someone, or they may have just failed to make fair provision required under the law. You may have legal remedies to challenge the will.
An executor or executrix manages a deceased’s estate. That person is responsible for preparing the estate for distribution to the will’s beneficiaries and is under strict legal duties to do so in accordance with legal requirements. If you are concerned about the actions of the executor, or you are an executor whose decisions are being questioned, we can help.
