How do you prove a will is fraudulent?
It is for the person contesting the will to prove it is invalid because it is fraudulent.
Contesting a will on the basis of fraud is difficult, not least because the key witness, the deceased, is not alive to give evidence, but also because an allegation of fraud is a very serious one to make and as such the burden of proof is harder to discharge. It is therefore very important to seek an assessment of the merits of the claim as soon as possible.
There are no time limits for contesting a fraudulent will, but you should not delay in seeking legal advice as soon as possible as steps may need to be taken urgently to protect the assets in the estate.
