Most cases of will disputes we come across when people believe they have been unfairly treated or left our of a friends or relatives will.
When this happens families are often drawn into long will disputes and eventually one side or the other ends up contesting the last will and testament in the High Court. This process of contending probate is usually costly and time consuming.
Making changes to a will after death can be done easily via a deed of family arrangement if all parties are in agreement. It is only when there is no agreement that the contentious probate process need to be started.
