Just because a person makes a valid Will doesn’t mean that it can’t be successfully challenged following their death thanks to our experience in Will and estate disputes in Brisbane and throughout Queensland.
Provided you are the spouse, child or step-child of the Deceased person, you have a right to commence Court proceedings seeking further provision from the Deceased person’s estate. This is known as a Family Provision Application. The ever-increasing complications of today’s family units with step-parents, step-siblings and half-siblings, as well as the rising value of real estate and complicated superannuation rules, mean that it’s increasingly common for the terms of a Will, especially an old Will, to be successfully challenged. This is particularly when family dynamics have changed after the Will is made or the Deceased person did not speak with a specialist Will and Deceased Estate Lawyer to prepare their estate plan.
If you believe the terms of the Will of a Deceased person don’t leave you with what you’re entitled to, we encourage you to contact our office to discuss your case and begin a Will and estate dispute in Brisbane or on the Gold Coast. We welcome your call on 1300 368 255 to discuss your right to bring a claim against the estate to seek further provision from the Will.
