Contesting Wills

Under South Australian law, spouses, children, grand-children and in some cases, a parent or sibling, may have a claim against a deceased person’s estate.

Time limits apply to contesting a Will. A Court application must be brought within 6 months of a Grant of Probate (or letters of administration where there is no Will). However, you should take advice as soon as possible because notice of a claim should be given to the executors before any assets of the estate are distributed.

We are happy to discuss any potential claim with you over the phone at no charge. In most cases, we offer a no obligation, free consultation to explore whether you have a claim worth pursuing.

There will usually be no charge to you until the case is finalised and, as a general rule, your legal fees will be met by the estate.
