DORMERS LAWYERS WILL HELP YOU
STEPS FOR A SUCCESSFUL WILL DISPUTE
Call or meet with us
You call us or meet with us, either in person or over the telephone or via Skype or Wechat to discuss the nature of your dispute or grievance and we tell you whether you have grounds to contest or challenge the will or otherwise bring a claim against the deceased’s estate.
If we think there are grounds for you to challenge the will or otherwise bring a claim against the deceased’s estate, we will arrange an appointment to meet with you to obtain more details regarding your claim at our offices.
Best way forward
We will identify and then assess the size and nature of the deceased’s estate (and any competing claims) and then consider the best way to resolve your wills dispute.
We will prepare the necessary court documents including the necessary evidence confirming your relationship with the deceased, your financial circumstances and current and future needs and then file the relevant court documents on your behalf to formally commence legal proceedings.
We will conduct your case in Court in a way which ensures that the dispute is finalised as quickly as possible and a minimum of costs and fuss. In this area, it is generally compulsory for all matters to go to mediation before significant legal costs are incurred which we think is a really good thing!
Absolutely fantastic service. Great outcome and it didn’t cost me as much as I thought. Very pleased!
WHAT OUR CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY
I found this law firm to have acted with honesty, integrity and fairness. I can highly recommend Dormers.
Thanks, Dormers. We did not expect such a great result. Here’s to moving on with our lives now.
They understood my circumstances and guided me to have a successful outcome. Without the help of Dormers I would not be in the position today of having a fair and just outcome.
I felt I had been somewhat overlooked in my Uncle's will. Dormers changed everything for me. They were able to achieve a fair outcome which has greatly assisted me in my daily life.
I was deeply offended when I discovered the contents of a family member's will. Dormers were able to negotiate a suitable outcome.
