How You Can Challenge a Will after Probate

London, United Kingdom (RPRN) 09/28/13 — The death of a friend or family member is always an enormous tragedy and something that will take some time to come to terms with, and unfortunately sometimes there may be legal matters to attend to on top of this. A Grant of Probate is something that allows an individual or number of individuals the ability to deal with the recently deceased persons affairs, or ‘administering the estate’ as it is often called. Sometimes however a will might need to be contested after probate, and if this situation does arise then it is important to get in touch with a legal firm that will be able to make the process as easy as possible.


It is of course not a nice thing to think about, but there are a number of different reasons that a will can be challenged and contested. Before the will was written the testator might have been unable to make informed decisions, and have their judgement altered because of an illness or the medication that they were on, the testator may have been forced or influenced to make the will or write something into it, the will itself may have been forged, it may not have been properly executed amongst several other reasons.


Contacting Solicitors that Can Help


These are the reasons that a will can be contested after probate, and if you want help in contesting a will then you will want to get in touch with solicitors like Will Claim Solicitors, and they will be able to offer you a free assessment and take the case forward whilst doing the difficult work for you.


The contesting of the will is something that needs to be addressed sooner rather than later, and although this may not be ideal it needs to be done due to time limits that there are on contesting wills, and this can be just six months after the grant of probate. If at all possible, it is better to contest the will before probate, as this way the estate cannot be administered by the executor. Clearly there is never a good time to face something like this, but it can be made a much easier process by getting in touch with solicitors who specialise in these cases and this way all of the hard work can be done by them.
