Contesting a will after probate
Just because probate has been granted doesn't mean you're too late to contest a will, but it does mean you need to act fast.
How much does it cost to contest a will?
Contesting a will can vary in price, mainly because some cases will take longer than others. Most solicitors will offer an hourly fee, but some will be able to reclaim the costs from the other side if successful.
What is the timeline for contesting a will?
There are time limits to contesting a will, and these will depend on your reason for contesting. Whilst you may feel that a will is unfair, it is important to consider the ‘grounds’ for contesting, as it will have to fit within a certain sector to justify your decision.
