There are few things more important from a legal, financial, and personal standpoint than ensuring that one’s will is executed in a fair and accurate manner. Last wills and testaments are, in a philosophic sense, a wonderful way in which your influence can continue to be felt after you are gone. Practically and financially, it’s one of the most important steps you can take to ensure that your wealth and assets are handled in an orderly and appropriate manner after your passing.
That said, even the best laid plans of mice and men sometimes go awry and even wills drawn up with the best of intentions can spark controversy. If you feel that you have been unfairly excluded from a will, have a competing will to present, or have otherwise been denied that to which you are entitled by way of a will, you’re going to want a quality team of solicitors and lawyers on your side to help fight for your rights. If you are indeed looking into contesting a will in NSW, here’s what the best will and probate legal team in the area can do for you.
The Legal Grounds for Will Contestation
First and foremost, you’re going to need to find out whether you actually have grounds for contesting the will in question. There are a variety of factors that can contribute to or detract from a will’s validity, from the state of mind of the party involved at the time of the signing to the process by which a will has been executed to the contents of a will itself. Will drafting and contestation is a legal field full of nuance; as such, you’ll want a legal team that is fully knowledgeable of and capable of dealing with all those nuances.
Mounting Your Case
If you do indeed have a case, your lawyers and probates will work to represent your interests in the best manner possible. Should the case come before a court, they will work to blend both oratorical power and unsurpassed knowledge and legal skill to present your case in the most compelling manner possible. That said, the majority of legal cases are settled out of court, which means that you’ll want a legal team who can handle that arena as well. The best will and probate attorneys will work with you and the other parties involved, seeking to resolve any contestations in as quick and amicable a fashion as possible while always fighting first and foremost for your best interests. Whether a case requires a gentle touch or steely tenacity, they’re sure to have the negotiating skills necessary to resolve things in your favour.
