Contesting a Will

When someone dies the last thing you would want is for there to be a squabble over their estate. But with property values being high, and estate values increasing we are finding that more and more often families or other parties are claiming they are entitled to an interest. This is the case whether or not the deceased left a Will. These disputes over contesting a will can be incredibly stressful.
