If there is a dispute by one or more of the beneficiaries involving inheritance, validity, or accuracy of a Will because it failed to make sufficient provision to the claimant it is called contentious probate.
Dealing with these kinds of issues requires a sensitive approach that looks at a wide range of factors e.g. family disputes, undue influence and testamentary capacity (a persons’ legal and mental ability to make or alter a valid will).
