Wills That Are Not Signed Or Witnessed Correctly

A Will is an important legal document. You may think that the signing and witnessing process would be straightforward, but there are strict rules that must be adhered to in order for it to be legally valid. It is crucial that Wills are signed and witnessed properly, If this isn't done, it is likely to be invalid and could be challenged by anyone who is not happy with its content.

Our expert Wills disputes team will investigate the circumstances surrounding execution and obtain statements to help you challenge the Will if it is invalid, or help you defend a claim if you are acting as an executor or beneficiary and someone else is contesting the Will.
