Contesting a Will can seem like a process that feels unnecessary. But if you feel that you have been inadequately provided for in your relative’s Will, then our experience dispute resolution solicitors can support you.

The legal grounds surrounding contested wills are substantial, but at Middletons Solicitors, we always aim for a successful claim which is properly executed. Our legal advice is always provided in your best interest.

We have supported many clients over the years to contest a Will quickly, efficiently and respectfully.

There are a number of occasions which can prompt legal action, these can include:

  • The deceased died before making a Will, and their properties were distributed against the promise of the individual made whilst alive
  • The belief that a family member’s or friend’s Will fails to reflect their final requests
  • Questioning the mental capacity at the time the deceased created their will
  • The deceased was under the influence of someone else
  • Change of circumstances after the Will had been originally completed
  • The failure of their step children being provided for
