Contesting A Will: What Will It Cost?

In your initial consultation, your lawyer will detail the general merits of the case. If they consider that the claim does not have merit, they will let you know straight away so that you can make your own decision about whether to proceed.

If you do decide to pursue the claim, you will be provided with an initial estimate of legal costs in accordance with legislation. In all estate matters, Hentys will act on a no win, no fee basis, and as part of any settlement process, with a successful claim, costs will be paid out of the estate proceeds so that you will not incur any out of pocket expenses.

Will I End Up In Court By Contesting a Will?

If you are considering contesting a Will, it’s important to remember that each case is subject to a court appointed mediation. In the last 5 years, Hentys Layers have not experienced a single estate dispute claim that has proceeded to a trial.

Even though the law recognises a person's right to choose who will inherit his or her property, there are often very good reasons why a person should be contesting a Will. Whatever your reasons may be, Hentys Lawyers will represent you throughout the process. We can get you the information and answers you need.

If you have any queries or require further information or advice, please don’t hesitate to get in touch; our experienced team is available and keen to assist you further.
