Contentious Probate

When there are questions raised over inheritance or the validity of a will, this is classed as Contentious Probate. Contentious Probate cases usually arise if you answer "yes" to any of the following questions:

Have you been unfairly left out of a will?

Have you not been adequately provided for in a will?

Do you dispute the validity of a will?

Are you entitled under a will and not receiving what you are entitled to?

Is someone else contesting the validity of a will you are benefitting from?

Are you an Executor in dispute with anoter Executor or Executors?

Has a will been lost?

Is there a factual error in a will?

Did someone coerce the deceased into making a will?

Were the formalities for the making of a will not complied with?


We can provide you with clear advice on where you stand and what action you can take.

We can discuss with you your options for funding your enquiries and a potential claim.

In certain circumstances we can act for you on a "no win - no fee" basis.

You need to be aware of the relevant time limits, in particular you need to be aware that if you are making a claim under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975 Court proceedings need to be commenced within 6 months of the date of the grant of probate. We can provide further advice on the applicable time limits.
