Contentious Probate Claims is a highly practical work which guides the practitioner through the law and procedure of contesting the validity of a will.

The book shows how to challenge a will and takes the user through each stage of the proceedings. It also includes a chapter on testamentary capacity.

  • Provides clear, straightforward guidance on an increasingly complex and technical area of law
  • Takes the practitioner through evidence and procedure step-by-step
  • Covers CPR Part 57 and also the jurisdiction of the Family Division (Probate) under the Non Contentious Probate Rules
  • Shows how to prepare a case, both pre-trial and at trial
  • Includes guidance on alternative dispute resolution methods including mediation
  • Offers guidance on costs
  • Contains all relevant statutory material and Rules, protocols, precedents, pleadings and forms, and case summaries of recent key case law
