Disputing a will

Whether you wish to contest the will of a relative, or find yourself in a dispute with your fellow executors or trustees, we can offer easy to understand advice and direction during this difficult time.

There are a number of rules that govern whether or not a will can be disputed. These include the following:

  • If you believe that the person who made the will did not have the mental capacity to do so
  • If you believe they were forced into making their will in a particular way

If a relative or spouse has excluded you from their will, whether partly or entirely, it may be possible to make a claim against the estate. Our solicitors can guide you through the rules and let you know whether your case can be pursued.

Our team of solicitors can also help in situations where the will has not been made according to the legal requirements of making a valid will, or if there has been a mistake made by the person who drafted the will.

Get in touch

Percy Hughes & Roberts’ legal specialists have years of experience in helping clients who have been unfairly left out of a loved one’s will. This area of the law is particularly complicated, and features a great deal of jargon, which can make it tricky to understand.

We can make sense of this language for you, as well as fight to ensure you get the outcome you deserve. Contact us by calling 0800 781 3894, or fill out an online enquiry form and we will get back to you.
