Whilst you have 12 months from the date of death to challenge a disputed Will, act now, before a distribution of the assets and therefore making the claim difficult to enforce.

We recommend raising your case within 2-3 Months of the date of death.

You need to prove that the Will is inadequate for your maintenance, education and advancement.

Our proven steps to success are:

  1. Gathering the material to support your case.
  2. Attempt to negotiate and or mediate an out of Court Settlement (we work on achieving results and not protracted Court disputes).
  3. Commencing Court proceedings, in the event of a negotiated and or a mediated settlement not being achieved, to allow the matter to proceed to a Court appointed mediation prior to a hearing. This has the advantage of reducing legal costs, delay and avoiding the stress and anxiety of a Court hearing.
  4. The majority of cases are resolved at a Mediation, without the need to proceed to the Court Hearing.
