Contesting A Will

When you are contesting a will, we have the expertise to help

Losing a loved one can be hard enough; not inheriting what is expected can make a distressing time even worse.

It is a sad fact that when someone dies there are often concerns over what has happened, or will happen, to that person’s property or finances. You may have fears that a loved one’s will is not valid, that they were not of the right mental capacity when it was created, or that they have passed on with without leaving you sufficient provision – perhaps they didn’t have a will at all.

Disagreements may also result following actions by those appointed under a Power of Attorney to manage that person’s affairs, or by a deputy appointed by the Court of Protection. Whatever your issue, at GA Solicitors we have the right team of experts to help.
