How to contest a will- Tips for contesting a will

If you have properties that are likely to be taxed after your passing you should pursue financial advice. There are many methods to spread out the responsibility that are perfectly legal. You don't need to leave any of your beneficiaries a large tax bill. You know the old saying, "There are only two things sure in life, passing and taxes." You can visit http://www.hentys.com.au/ for Contesting A Will online.

Don't be economized. If you have considerable assets or a little bit more difficult living arrangement (ex-wives / husbands, step children, etc.), search for professional legal advice and don't do it by hand.

The Act stipulates that you must be either:

A baby of the deceased

A partner of the deceased

A former spouse of the dead who was receiving protection and had not remarried/entered into a new social partnership at the time of death

Any individual who was financially dependent on the deceased

Any individual who was financially dependent on the deceased

Any individual who was treated as a 'child of the family' by the dead

A co-habitee of the dead for more than 3 years

Any individual who received maintenance from the dead that partly or wholly maintained them right away before the deceased's death.

Under the legacy Act 1975 you must be able to prove enough grounds to contest the Will.

In adding to the above, the following may also be taken into thought:

Your financial circumstances and that of other beneficiaries of the estate

The deceased's obligation to you and other beneficiaries

Any deficiency, you may have

Your connection to the deceased
