We Remain Open, We Are Taking New Files, We Provide Solutions.

estate litigation

In Manitoba you may contest a Will if one of six conditions is met. Click here for more information. If you believe your circumstance falls within one of these conditions, we will file an application with the court to contest the Will on your behalf. Read more about the process we use to contest a Will in Manitoba. 

Currently, the court’s doors remain open for filing. Filing deadlines continue to remain in place and processes that usually occur without court attendance, such as consent orders, continue to be processed. 

For estate litigation matters that require court intervention, we encourage litigants to continue to prepare as though the court’s doors were not closed. This is also an opportune time for you to seek a change in representation as the lawyer will have the necessary time to become familiarized with the file. This preparation includes continuing to amass the necessary documents and preparing the documents that must be filed in order to proceed through the court system. This approach will also ensure that we are well prepared for settlement discussions, which can and should be occurring despite the court’s closure, and particularly if it appears that the court’s closure will be on a long term basis because it may require that parties find alternative solutions. Continuing in this way ensures that the file will proceed through the court system as quickly and seamlessly as possible once its doors have reopened and will avoid being caught in what we expect will be a tremendous backlog at the court.
