Defending a Will
Without proper legal advice, defending a Will can be stressful and is the last thing you want to deal with as an Executor. It is best for you to seek help from lawyers who specialise in defending Wills to ensure the process is as smooth as possible.
The law in NSW allows people to decide who will inherit their assets after their death. However, there are times that someone may want to contest a Will left by the deceased.
Upon someone’s death, the appointed Executor of this deceased person’s Will carries out their wishes and distributes their estate to the beneficiaries of the Will. Most people will respect the last wishes of the deceased, but there are times that one or more people may think that the Will is unfair and decide to challenge the Will.
