Step 1 - Are You Eligible to Contest a Will?

The first consideration when disputing a will is establishing your eligibility to do so. Not just anyone can contest a will, you have to be a person who was in a certain relationship with a deceased person.

The categories of eligibility in each state are:


  • a spouse (including de facto and same sex partners);
  • a child (including stepchild);
  • a dependant.

New South Wales
