Undue Influence

Thinking About Challenging A Will?

RHC Solicitors have extensive experience in wills and estates, including contesting or challenging a Will. Our Queensland lawyers are strongly connected to prominent estate professionals and barristers and understand the complexities and requirements when it comes to the grounds to challenge or contest a Will.

Undue influence is where a coercion or pressure is involved and used against a testator, which results in them leaving a Will that does not reflect their wishes or intentions.

To contest a Will on the basis of undue influence requires a person to prove on the balance of probabilities that influence or coercion was involved at the time of making the Will and consequently this caused the testator to sign the Will which is inconsistent with their intention or free will.

The use of undue influence can have the effect of invalidating a Will, or in some cases particular provisions of a Will.

Undue influence is difficult to establish, and it is crucial to have a lawyer who understands the process and legalities to establish this cause of action to contest a Will.

At RHC Solicitors, we have a team of estate lawyers who handle estate disputes every day.
