Challenging an Estate (TFM Claim)

Estate challenges are becoming increasingly more common. The law has widened in recent years to allow those who believe they should have received more under the Will than they did to challenge the Will and ask the Court to make orders giving that person a share – or a larger share – of an deceased estate.

This type of claim is also more formally known as Testator’s Family Maintenance (or TFM) claim.

We act for those who want to bring a claim and those Executors or Administrators who represent Estate that has had a claim brought against it.

Contact PCL Lawyers Today if:

  • you are an Executor and a claim has been brought against the Estate; or
