Contested Will in Hungary

"Further to the passing of my daughter, I contacted Peter to assist me with the closing of her bank account in Budapest. Peter was extremely helpful in dealing with the bank. Not an easy situation as receiving the proper information from them was quite challenging, but he definitely stayed on top of the case and did his utmost for ensure that the necessary was done.

He always kept me duly informed of the progress and provided assistance as well with the local steps I had to undertake here in Luxembourg wit the Hungarian Consulate. Peter also helped me with other Hungarian administrative documents which I had received for my daughter to ensure that nothing was left pending. He took the time to contact the required offices to advise them of the passing of may daughter and that whatever needed to be done with them was done. I would have not been able to solve this without his assistance.

Peter was always very professional and I felt really got himself involved in the matter. I truly appreciated his assistance and it would be a pleasure to have the opportunity to meet him and thank him in person. I could have not asked for a better person and better support."

1Who is this Service for?

Contesting a Will can be fraught with difficulty - not to mention emotion - given that an individual may likely be asserting a right to inherit against another family member. The ability to contest a Will depends very much on the circumstances of the case and the applicable law.

This becomes more complex once again when considered in an international context. There may be conflicting jurisprudence as to which laws apply, nevermind what those laws actually state. Often the grounds for varying a Will would relate to undue influence on the intestator by a beneficiary named in the Will though in European jurisdictions, a child of the deceased may have a right to a portion of the estate in a system known as forced heirs, and any failure to inherit the minimum portion assigned by law, could give rise to a right to contest the Will.

2 What does this service consist of?

  • Initial consultation with a specialist lawyer to determine your rights under national and/or international law to contest a Will
  • Communication with other interested parties and relevant authorities on your behalf to have the terms of the Will changed
  • Representation in legal proceedings where required to ensure a variation of the terms of the Will and the registration of rightful interests in the estate
