How to Contest a Will

Most will disputes are settled through mediation and do not go to court. Mediation is a voluntary form of negotiation, which allows two parties to come to an agreement on how to solve the dispute settlement themselves without involving the courts. Mediation can go some way to minimising the impact on relationships between family members, which may have been damaged during the disagreement.

However, there are times when meditation does not work and formal court proceedings are issued in order to contest a will. Contesting a will has both emotional and economic implications so it’s important to find an expert solicitor who is sensitive to your needs. At Burt Brill & Cardens we are experienced in dealing with a whole range of contested will cases and resolving them through mediation or in court.
