03. Contested Estates

Family Provision Claims

If you have been left out of a will that you expected to be in, you may be eligible to contest the will through a family provision claim in the Supreme Court of New South Wales.

 

Alternatively, you may be the executor of an estate that has a family provision claim being made against it. 

These situations can be messy, complex and onerous for all parties involved and require the care of a skilled lawyer with expertise in this niche area of law.

 

Avid Law has the experience, expertise and tenacity to ensure that you get the most favourable outcome in your circumstances. 

Contested Grants

A grant of administration (i.e. probate or letters of administration) may be contested where there is a dispute about the eligibility of the person applying for the grant, where there is a dispute about the validity if the will, the capacity of the testator at the time of making the will, or where there is a question over whether there was undue influence on the testator at the time of making the will.

These situations can be messy, complex and onerous for all parties involved and require the care of a skilled lawyer with expertise in this niche area.

 

Avid Law has the experience, expertise and tenacity to ensure that you get the most favourable outcome in your circumstances.

Disaffected Beneficiaries

Executors, administrators and trustees owe a fiduciary duty to beneficiaries and beneficiaries have rights. If you are a beneficiary of a deceased estate or trust and you have concerns that something is not quite right, come and have a discussion with us.
