If a deceased person has not left a Will, or their Will is inadequate or ambiguous, disputes can arise where someone considers they have been left out of a Will, not adequately provided for by the deceased or if an executor is not discharging their duties appropriately.  Disputes regarding a deceased estate are inherently complex due to the parties often being required to determine or interpret what the deceased person intended in their absence, and due to the high emotion and stress felt by all parties involved.

Pragma Legal can advise and represent clients in respect of any disputes relating to the distribution of a deceased estate or inadequate inheritance so that the matter can be resolved as quickly and efficiently as possible and with as little stress to you as possible.

Pragma Legal can act for a party by:

  • negotiating with the executor of an estate or their legal representative on your behalf;
  • commencing proceedings in the Supreme Court of Western Australia; and
  • giving effect to any orders or agreements made between parties to resolve the dispute.

If you consider that a person appointed as the executor of a deceased’s will is not discharging their duties appropriately, or if you consider that you have not been adequately provided for in a Will, then contact our office to arrange a free 15 minute consult with one of our lawyers.
