Why would you contest a will?
What might be some reasons for contesting a will?
- To seek what is fair, particularly in cases of undue influence;
- It is often about seeking closure, especially where the person who made the will had a ‘moral duty’ of care that has not been fulfilled;
- Sometimes it is about vindicating the rightful place of someone within the family tree that has been estranged, forgotten or ignored by no fault or intention of their own, e.g. having occurred through breaches of power of attorney.
