Contentious probate is a dispute about an inheritance or the validity of a Will. Put simply, it is a disagreement after someone has died about how their estate will be distributed. It may arise from concerns about the way in which the Will was drawn up or sometimes someone feeling the Will didn’t leave them what they were promised or were expecting.
Losing a loved one is extremely difficult at the best of times. When a dispute arises over a loved one’s estate, it can become almost too much to bear. Tensions can often rise over the terms or validity of a Will, the distribution of an estate, or even broken promises.
