Toronto Estate Litigation Lawyers for Executors Defending Will Challenges



If you are the executor of a loved one’s estate, one of the most stressful things about your role is a potential will challenge from a dissatisfied beneficiary or would-be beneficiary. Will challenges can be difficult to deal with during a time that is usually already emotional and stressful. If you are faced with a will challenge, your best course of action is to consult with a knowledgeable estate lawyer as soon as possible to protect yourself and the estate.

Are you an executor of a will that has been challenged?

Anyone with a financial interest in an estate can contest or challenge a will. Claims can be made on three grounds:

  1. Formality;
  2. Mental/Testamentary Capacity;
  3. Undue influence.

Executors facing a will challenge should be aware that this type of legal action can be long and expensive. The best way to deal with a will dispute is to have an experienced estate litigation lawyer on your side who can safeguard your interests, manage your legal and financial risk, and ensure the estate is protected.
