Specialist Melbourne Estate Lawyers

If someone close to you has recently passed away, and you’re concerned about how their assets are being distributed, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

We’ve worked on hundreds of Will Dispute cases and know how important it is to resolve these matters quickly, and with minimal stress for those involved. That’s why, we endeavour to resolve most of our dispute cases at mediation, before they are escalated to the Court.

Disputing an Estate in Melbourne is only possible under certain circumstances. Unless there are legitimate reasons, Victorian courts are unlikely to change a valid Will.

If you are considering lodging an Estate Dispute in Melbourne, or if you are an executor that needs to defend a will, refer to the following for additional information.


At Hentys, we have a team of expert estate litigation lawyers on hand with over 40 years of experience in handling a wide range of Estate Disputes in Victoria. Drawing from our past successes, we can quickly determine if you’re entitled to make a claim at and let you know what the outcome is likely to be.

  • We will make sure the claim is viable
  • We will check the size and scope of the estate
  • We are dedicated to achieving the best outcome
  • We make the process worry-free
  • We’re based in Melbourne very accessible to local clients.

We understand that estate disputes can be complicated, but we endeavour to make the process as simple as possible for you. Your Estate Lawyer will guide you through every step and keep you informed about your options throughout the process.


In most cases, Estates are disputed by people who believe there is reason to doubt the validity of the Will, for example someone may challenge the Will if:

  • They have doubts about the Deceased’s mental capacity at the time they made the Will
  • They do not think the Will was signed and witnessed properly
  • They are unsure whether the deceased understood the effect of the Will
  • There are indications that parts of the Will have been changed after the deceased signed it
  • They do not believe that the Will intended to be relied upon is the last Will of the Deceased
  • The Will is unclear and/or cannot be understood.
