Wills and Probate

Have you been left out of a will or are your receiving less than your fair share? We see examples of this every day.  A common one is when the parents remarry and on the death of your parent, the bulk of their assets are left to the new spouse, with little or nothing left to you, the children from the first marriage. Another common one is when there is one large asset forms the bulk of your parent’s assets, such as a farm, family business or property. In these cases often all of the business/farm/property is left to one child with little left to the other siblings. Unfortunately these situations are all too common especially with the increasing divorce rate contributing to increasing numbers of 2nd and 3rd marriages. That is where we can help with your problem.

At Lex Fori Lawyers we focus on everything to do with Wills. Be it contesting a will, or any manner of will disputes, handling a deceased estate or even preparing a Will or Testamentary Trust. We have successfully acted for both people contesting a will or involved in will disputes and we have also acted for estates to help protect them from frivolous claims. As a result we know the system backwards, having seen it from both sides.

  • listen to you;
  • advise and explain the relevant law;
