In New South Wales, it is common for legal disputes to arise out of a deceased estate. Armstrong Legal has a dedicated team of contested estates lawyers who specialise in advocating for the interests of family members who are recently bereaved and providing them with quality legal advice and representation at this difficult time.
Some common NSW contested estates matters are contesting the provisions of a will and challenging the validity of a will as well as defending a will against a contest or a challenge. Our lawyers also deal with situations where an executor needs to be removed, cannot be located, or may lack capacity.
Many contested estates matters can be resolved through negotiations between the parties involved with the help of a lawyer who is experienced in this area.
