Contesting a Will after Probate – Inheritance Disputes

Our specialist probate team can also advise on all aspects of contested probate, providing sensitive but practical legal advice and guidance for you or on behalf of a loved one regarding inheritance disputes or challenging a will. Disputes can arise for a number of reasons, normally due to:

  • Disputes relating to the value of assets
  • Executor disputes
  • Disputes between beneficiaries
  • Disputes relating to Trusts
  • Disputes relating to the interpretation of a will

There will be grounds on which a Will can be contested, but in general, the main grounds upon which an inheritance challenge can be brought are that the Will itself is invalid, if the deceased did not make reasonable financial provision for them in their Will or if there is no Will and a person is left without reasonable financial provision by the rules of intestacy.

Themis Solicitors can help you if you need to challenge or contest a will, or we can defend you if you are a beneficiary and the Will is being challenged. Our expert contentious probate lawyers will work with you to resolve the dispute quickly and cost-effectively.
