If you think a will has been forged, you should seek specialist legal advice as soon as possible. Urgent steps will need to be taken to prevent a grant of probate being obtained and to preserve the estate funds and assets. Extensive enquiries will need to be made into the preparation of the will, which will often include instructing a handwriting expert. Contentious probate is a niche area and we strongly recommend that you seek legal advice from a specialist. You can find details of the lawyers in our dedicated Disputed Wills and Trusts Team.
