Contested Probate

When a person dies without leaving a Will, the spouse has a prior right to apply for grant of Letters of Administration.

If the spouse has already predeceased him or her, then each surviving child has the right to apply for Letters of Administration. In such an instance, siblings may contest with one another for the aforesaid application.

In another instance, when the deceased testator dies leaving a will but a non-beneficiary to a deceased’s estate may still object to the validity of Will on the grounds that the testator did not have the testamentary capacity or that the Will is invalid for non compliance with the requirements of the Wills Act or that the Will was not duly interpreted to the testator.
