What happens if a Will is contested following the competition of a capacity assessment?

When we complete a testamentary capacity assessment we produce a comprehensive report that can be kept alongside the signed Will. In many circumstances this independent and robust report can be used in the circumstance of a contest. It would give evidence to show that the person had capacity to create a Will and the discussions of their wishes for the Will.

If the situation calls for it, we can also provide further information from the assessment or ask the assessor to attend court (please be aware there would be additional charges for this service).
