Estate Dispute Law

Estate dispute law on the Gold Coast


Estate dispute law experts

We at Radich Lawyer on the Gold Coast understand you might need to dispute an estate. The Succession Act of 1981 is a Queensland law that allows an eligible person to challenge a will in court.

Even if you or someone else has a legal will, certain circumstances will allow a family member or other eligible member to challenge that will. If you want to decrease the possibility of such a challenge, ensure you have a qualified legal professional work on the will.

To be eligible to dispute a will, the individual must be:
  • A spouse (married or de-facto)
  • Children of any age, including stepchildren
  • Dependents (children & parents)
  • An ex-spouse

Contesting a will

Will contestation usually happens when a person believes they didn’t get as much out of the estate as they should have gotten. Before contesting a will, you should consult a lawyer to see if you have a case and what their advice is about moving forward.

During times of extreme grief and tense emotions, this is often the time when misunderstandings and disputes arise. A family member may not believe their share of the property was distributed fairly, which could cause a lengthy and painful legal process.

Without the help of a neutral third-party, it can be near impossible for friends and family members to come to a resolution over property and money issues. If you work with a professional lawyer like Radich Lawyer, you have the opportunity to resolve the conflict out of court. While it is not always possible to resolve the issues out of court, there is an excellent chance when you have a professional helping you through the process.
