Estate Litigation Lawyer Vancouver Legal Services

Each Jiwa Law estate lawyer is well versed in a variety of estate disputes. 

Wills disputes

Challenging a will is controlled by the Wills Variation Act in BC.

If you have been disinherited from a will, it means you were completely left out of your loved ones will.  A common example would be where a parent leaves a child out of their will, for whatever reason, or no reason at all.

Wills variation claim

In some cases, a will may be challenged if it does not make adequate provision for proper maintenance and support of a spouse or child. This is referred to as a wills variation claim, and  a challenge must be filed with the court within 180 days after probate has been granted. If the court is satisfied that a will is unfair, the court may vary the will to correct the unfairness.

A will may also be challenged if there are concerns surrounding its validity. Concerns regarding whether the will-maker had the testamentary capacity to express their wishes, or whether there was undue influence upon the will-maker may be cause the court to declare all or part of a will to be invalid.

Sometimes, there may be disagreements regarding how a will should be interpreted or executed. In such cases, the Court may be asked to interpret a will or determine whether or not a will was executed properly.

Sometimes, despite the best efforts put into planning, problems arise while an estate is being administered. Executors, trustees, and individuals possessing powers of attorney are held to a high standard and may be liable for damages or loss if problems arise.

We understand the passing of a loved one is a difficult time. Dealing with an unfair will or with disputes between other beneficiaries or executors can only exacerbate the stress. Contact our office for a consultation to see how our team may relieve some of the burden.
