Contest a Will

This service is available across Turkey

Client Profile: Who Needs This Service?

Contesting a Will in Turkey is governed by strict legal protocols, in particular the Turkish Civil Code (Medeni Kanun). This process is designed for individuals who believe a Will does not genuinely reflect the deceased's intentions due to undue influence, incapacity, or failure to adhere to legal formalities, including:

  • Persons suspecting that the Will does not accurately convey the decedent's wishes, due to undue pressure, mental incapacity, or procedural errors.
  • Heirs or beneficiaries who find themselves unjustly excluded or believe the Will to be invalid under Turkish law.

  • Grounds for contestation based on the Will's non-compliance with Turkish legal requirements, the testator's mental incapacity at the Will's creation, or evidence of undue influence.
