Mistakes in estate administration can mean undue delays in the distribution of the proceeds of the estate or costly litigation.

Disputing an unfair will in BC often requires the assistance of lawyers knowledgeable in BC Estate Law who are able to provide trusted advice to get their fair share of the estate. Being unfairly disinherited may leave people who were rightfully entitled to benefit from the estate struggling financially and emotionally in the years that follow. In BC, wills and estates are governed by the Wills, Estates and Succession Act – the act specifies the time limits that people have to dispute an unfair will and governs the process by which people can ask the court to invalidate a will or change a will. Getting timely legal advice is important as not all wills meet the standards set by the Act and often wills may be changed by the court to address situations where the will was either invalid or unjustly penalized one or more of the rightful beneficiaries to the estate.
