Commence a contested will claim: Father’s Niece Inherits – Children Lose Out

Two sons find that shortly before he died their father made a new Will leaving everything to

his sister’s daughter (their favourite cousin). The sister prepared the Will. Would they be

successful if they contest the Will?

So long as they have a sufficiently strong relationship with the father, and are able to prove

financial need they would probably be successful. They should also investigate whether in

fact this Will is valid, as it is quite possible that the deceased father suffered undue influence

or did not have capacity to sign the Will.
