Probate and Trust disputes

If you find yourself involved in a dispute over an estate or trust, contact JMW on 0345 872 6666 or fill out our online enquiry form and one of our team of approachable and practical lawyers will be on hand to help you find a resolution to your problems.

Whether you wish to contest the will of a loved one, or find yourself at odds with your fellow executors or trustees, JMW’s specialist team is able to offer sensitive guidance and direction during what is often a very difficult and emotional time.

Disputing a will

There are specific rules that govern whether a will can be disputed. For example, it is possible to dispute a will if:

  • You feel that the person who made it did not have the mental capacity to do so
  • They were forced into making their will in a certain way

If your spouse, partner or parent has excluded you partly or entirely from their will, it may be possible to make a claim against the estate. Our lawyers can guide you through the rules and let you know whether your situation falls into one of the categories and help you work out the best way forward.

We can also help with situations where the will has not complied with the formal requirements of making a valid will, or there has been a mistake made by the person who drafted the will that has resulted in the deceased’s wishes not being put into action.
