How To Contest a Will in NSW – Contesting a Will

Want to contest or dispute a will? The death of a loved one is an emotionally challenging time. Especially if you’ve been unfairly provided for in a Will. The validity of a Will can be contested after a person dies if:

  • The claimant believes they’re entitled to more from the deceased’s estate than they received.
  • They lacked the capacity to make a Will at the time they signed it
  • They made the Will under the influence of others

Who can contest a Will?

The law recognises a person’s right to choose who will receive their property and possessions. But, there are many good reasons why a person may choose to contest a Will. Including:

  • If you are a child of the person who made the Will (or an adopted child)
  • If you are a grandchild of the person who made the Will and were wholly or partially dependent upon them. For example, you lived with the deceased or the deceased supported you financially
  • If you are the ex-wife or ex-husband of the person who made the Will
  • If you lived with the person who made the Will at some time and you were dependent upon them to some extent (this commonly includes stepchildren or foster children)
  • If you were married to the person who made the Will, or you were their partner

Did you know?

You could be eligible to make a claim even if there is no Will.
