When a loved one dies, there are a lot of emotions to deal with. There are also the practicalities of managing financial affairs after the person’s death. That usually means dealing with Wills, Estates and Probate.
Sometimes when a loved one’s will is read, family members find that they have been left out of the will or have been inadequately provided for. This can lead to the will being contested by the person who feels aggrieved and defended by those who want the will to remain as it is. In Queensland, you only have nine months from the date of the deceased’s death to contest a will, so it’s essential for your future that you engage the services of one of our Brisbane Contested Wills Lawyers.
