Legal Grounds for Contesting a Will

Legal Grounds for Contesting a Will

In order to contest the validity of a Will you need to have legal grounds to launch a challenge. These grounds are strictly defined and include the following:

  • Did the deceased intend to make the Will?
  • Was it the deceased last Will?
  • Was the deceased of sound mind, memory and understanding when they made the Will?
  • Did the deceased know and approve the Will?
  • Did the deceased make the Will of their own free will and without undue influence or pressure?
  • Was the Will executed properly i.e. signed and witnessed correctly?
  • Is there evidence of fraud or forgery?
  • Was the Will revoked?

If you feel that you have legal grounds to contest a Will we would recommend that you seek legal advice as soon as possible as there is a time limit on how long you have to contest a Will.
