If you have been left out of a will or received an unequal share of the estate, it is not surprising for you to feel the will is unfair.
If you wish to dispute a will and meet the requirements, you may have the right to take legal action to challenge its validity or fairness.
This can be a complex process, but with the right guidance and representation, you can have peace of mind knowing your rights are being protected.
In New South Wales, Australia, there are several valid reasons to dispute a will, including:
- Exclusion from the will: If a person was expected to inherit from the will and has been excluded, they may choose to dispute the will by making a Family Provision Claim.
- Unfair distribution of assets: If a person feels that they have not been provided for fairly in the will, they may choose to dispute the will by making a Family Provision Claim.
- Lack of testamentary capacity: If a person believes that the testator (person making the will) did not have the mental capacity to understand the nature and effect of their actions at the time the will was made, they may choose to dispute the validity of the will.
- Undue influence: If a person believes that someone forced or coerced the testator to make a particular provision in the will (called undue influence), they may choose to dispute the validity of the will.
- Fraud or forgery: If a person suspects that the will has been forged or fraudulently altered, they may choose to dispute the validity of the will.
These are just a few examples of why people may choose to dispute a will in New South Wales.
