Would like to know the grounds and process of Contesting a Will

McKeag & Co Solicitors are here to help you through the contesting a Will process of getting support.

In order to bring a lawsuit, the Court requires that you must have ‘sufficient reasons’ to invalidate a Will, which was signed by the testator.


The most common reasons are Validity of a Will, Fraudulent & forged Will. When someone feels disagreement about the Testator’s Estate they can challenge a Will.

In absence of any Will, The Estate of Testator will undergo Administration (Rules of Intestacy) instead of Probate.


You cannot simply contest a Will, because you think you didn’t receive an asset that you had been told, you would get or deserve more from inheritance.

No Win, No Fee

With no win no fee, there aren’t any upfront charges or hidden costs. If you do win your case, we will charge you a ‘success fee’ as a percentage of the compensation you receive, this will then be capped at a maximum of 25% – and in many cases this is significantly less than this so you will receive the majority yourself. This fee will be agreed between you and your solicitor before we take on your case.
