            For the best chance of success, call our wills experts at PK Simpson as soon as you realise something is wrong, something untoward happens regarding the will. You need legal help also if you have been left without provision in a loved one’s will, you haven’t been adequately provided for, or you suspect fraud or other suspicious activity regarding the will.

The claim and who pays is decided either by the Supreme Court, mediation or negotiation before the case reaches court.

            A will can be contested in NSW on several grounds including that the will is grossly unfair. Contesting a will due to undue influence is common, and other reasons include the testator having lacked testamentary capacity, experienced duress when making their will, there was fraud or forgery involved.

            In NSW, you have 12 months from the date of the person’s death to challenge or contest their will. You can contest a will even after probate is granted but it’s always best to act fast so as not to jeopardise your claim.

            You have 12 months from the death of the person to make your initial claim. But you may still be able to challenge the will under certain circumstances, even if the estate has been distributed to beneficiaries. These include not knowing the person had died or proving you were threatened, then the court can set aside the usual time limit.

            The only people who can make a family provision claim or contest a will are those who are eligible. Unless you are a relative of the deceased or living in the same household you cannot claim the estate. Moreover, eligibility can be complex because every case is different so you should call PK Simpson today for legal advice.

            Yes, a will can be challenged not only by beneficiaries involved in the will but also by anyone with an interest or relationship with the testator.

            You may have a case if you are eligible to claim family provision or wish to challenge a will that you believe is not legally binding, has been tampered with or changed.
