• How long does it take to contest a will?

Every case varies depending on the circumstances. It is difficult to estimate as it will depend on the backlog in the court lists, the speed at which the pleadings are delivered by the party defending the application and whether parties can resolve matters outside of court.

If an amicable resolution can be obtained, it usually cuts down the length of time significantly. Our experienced solicitors endeavour to reach a satisfactory outcome at the earliest possible opportunity.
