Will Dispute Lawyers
Do I Need a Will Dispute lawyer?
Our Will Dispute Lawyers in Brisbane can assist estate administrators and those who suffer hardship because they have been overlooked or inadequately provided for in a will.
Administrators, financial dependents, beneficiaries and relatives need to know what might be involved if a dispute arises for example by reason of potential beneficiaries left out of a relative’s will.
A person is able to create their will however they please but that doesn’t mean others can’t exercise their right to dispute it. Queensland law allows family members or dependants who suffer hardship because they have been overlooked or inadequately provided for in a will, to bring a lawsuit for estate allocation to them. There are other grounds to dispute Wills as well.
An applicant should be an eligible person in relation to the estate of the deceased to dispute a Will. An eligible person is someone who falls under either one of the following:
- Spouse of the deceased;
- Child of the deceased;
- A dependant of the deceased.
