On what grounds can a Will be contested?
A person is entitled to distribute their assets by way of a will, generally as they please. The courts however, have the power to vary gifts in a will, provide benefits for persons omitted from a will or declare an entire will invalid.
Queensland law allows family members, dependents and sometimes relatives, to challenge the will if they feel they have been overlooked or inadequately provided for. Disputed wills are becoming increasingly common.
