How DAS Law can help you
Our experienced team of dispute resolution lawyers will provide you with practical legal advice if you want to contest a will or need help defending a contested will claim.
These are some of the outcomes we can achieve for you:
The removal or substitution of Executors/Administrators.
An Order from the Court as to how an estate is to be administered, how assets are to be valued and who is to get what.
An Order from the Court that gifts made before death are to be returned to the deceased’s estate.
Important things to consider
Here are some important things you should be aware of regarding your legal problem:
- There are a number of reasons to contest a will, including insufficient provision for family and dependants, undue influence from another party, or lack of testamentary capacity.
- Whilst the deadline for bringing certain claims is 12 years, in some cases time limits can be considerably shorter and in many cases it’s often better to take pre-emptive steps (before the estate is dealt with) than wait for the damage to be done.
How much will it cost?
If you would like DAS Law to help you with your legal dispute over a will, there are a number of ways of funding your legal costs, including:
Legal Expenses Insurance (LEI)
If you have a motor or home insurance policy this may include LEI cover. If so, your legal costs may be covered by that policy, subject to its terms and conditions. If you are unsure if your insurance policy includes LEI cover, we will check this with you.
If you do not have LEI cover, then we have a host of fee options which we will tailor to suit your needs. Where appropriate we will offer competitive fixed fees for each stage of your case so that you have complete certainty on your legal spend. Where this is not suitable, we offer a range of discounted hourly rates, depending on the experience and seniority of the person dealing with your case.
Our legal advisers are always happy to discuss our fee options with you in more detail.
