If you are concerned or unhappy with the terms of a will you may be able to contest it.

Contesting a will can be emotionally challenging

If you decide to challenge a will you are in effect opposing the last will of the deceased. This can often affect relationships and heighten emotions, particularly if you are in disagreement with other family members. You should therefore be prepared for what may be a trying time.
