Challenge a Will NSW
If you have been left out of a Will, received what you believe to be an unfair share of an estate, or don’t know where you stand because there is no Will, then it is important that you receive advice as soon as possible as there are strict time limits to apply to the Court for provision from the estate of the deceased person.
Not everyone is eligible to claim provision from an estate, or challenge a Will, in NSW. The Succession Act 2006 defines the categories of persons eligible to challenge a Will. Often the first step in considering whether to challenge a Will is to determine whether your circumstances are such which meet the test of 'eligible person' under the Act.
Once eligibility is established, consideration can then be given as to whether a Court can and will make an order for provision, or further provision, from the estate of the deceased person.
