If you’ve been left out of a will, or have been unfairly treated in terms of the amount of your inheritance, you may be able to make a claim against the estate. Wills Direct can provide you with advice as to whether you are someone who is entitled to claim against an estate under South Australian law.
We can also offer advice if you are an executor or a beneficiary and a claim has been made against the estate or against your interest in the estate. There are time limits in which to claim, so if you wish to do so, you should contact us as soon as possible to discuss the claim.
You can also challenge a will if you believe that the person who made it lacked the mental capacity to make a will or had undue influence brought to bear upon him or her or if you believe the will is a forgery or there was any kind of fraud involved in the making of the will. Because of the time limits in which to make a claim, you should contact us as soon as possible if you have concerns in relation to the validity of a will .
At every stage of contesting or challenging a Will it’s important to have sound, experienced legal advice.
Regardless of the circumstances, if you are experiencing any conflict in relation to a will or a deceased estate, you can arrange a home visit with Katrina so that she can explain the legal process and your rights and start to work towards a solution.
