The loss of a loved one is difficult, and disputes over wills and estates can exacerbate the pain. Our skilled estate litigation lawyers at Nirwan Law Corporation strive to simplify estate successions, resolve disputed wills, and maintain the rights for spouses and families in unfair will variations.
While a clear plan for estate succession helps limit the chance of future disputes, estate planning is complex and can leave spouses or children feeling they have been treated unfairly. An experienced estate litigation lawyer clarifies and simplifies the inheritance process, works to uphold the deceased’s wishes, and helps your family navigate the stressful and emotional litigation process.
Challenges to wills may be based on various factors, including when the will-maker signed the will, the mental capacity of the will-maker, or technical formalities. Recent changes to the law allow wills that do not meet all technical requirements to still be considered and carried out as a legal will. If you need help ensuring a will is accurately and properly executed, our law firm can handle all aspects of your case.
Unfair will variation claims
The B.C. Wills, Estate and Succession Act (WESA) sets out the rights for spouses and children to bring claims to vary unfair wills. A will-maker has a legal and moral obligation to provide for their spouse and any underage children. If that obligation is not upheld, the Court may approve changes to an existing will. An experienced lawyer in family law can help protect your rights if you feel those obligations have not been upheld.
