Challenging a Will

IMPORTANT NOTICE: CHANGES TO VICTORIAN TESTAMENTARY FAMILY MAINTENANCE LEGISLATION COME INTO EFFECT ON 1ST JANUARY 2015.

Everyone has the right to choose who they leave their assets to. The law also recognises that some people have the right to contest or dispute a Will.

People usually contest a Will when they believe:

  • they should have been provided for but have been left out or feel they have not received a large enough share
  • the Willmaker did not have the capacity to understand what they were doing
  • someone may have applied undue influence on the Willmaker when the Will was being prepared
  • the Will is unclear or ambiguous.
