Contentious Wills, Trusts and 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?

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.
