Menzies Lawyers can help when estate disputes arise before or after the death of a loved one.
We have acted in bringing guardianship applications before the court to protect someone who has become incapable of managing their property or their personal care in situations where there is no power of attorney.
Where powers of attorney are granted, we know what to do when the validity of the grant is called into question or where the conduct of the attorney is contested.
When someone dies with a Will that has been made under suspicious circumstances, where a drafting ambiguity exists, or in cases where a dependent has been left out, we have the experience needed to challenge or support the Will, or otherwise obtain the court’s determination of the proper interpretation of the testator’s wishes.
Court intervention may also be warranted where an executor / estate trustee is acting improperly, or there are claims made by or against the estate (or the testator, while alive).
