The procedure for challenging or contesting a Will is to file a “Caveat” against the Will, which will begin Caveat proceedings. The court will suspend the powers of the Personal Representative until the contest is resolved. Caveat proceedings can range considerably in complexity and cost. The prudent approach would be to consult with an attorney experienced in probate law and caveat proceedings to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the challenge and to help formulate an effective strategy to proceed as cost-effectively as possible.
