A will is usually a document or anything such which states the amount one is entitled to in his/ her family property, or it is something which tells about a person’s rights in the family property. Problem arises when there are healthy families having will disputes.
How much can a property exactly affect a family?
A will can affect adversely, the people entitled to the will. I would like to take this further with something to agree on this statement. I have an experience of property will dispute of my own family. This is about this property dispute I faced a while ago, when my grandfather died and he had stated some amount to be shared among me and my cousin. We both had this property to be shared as per the will. Now, after some time, when we actually decided to sort out this will issue, that was when it came to my knowledge that my cousin had made some changes in the will without my permission and he had shared the property as per his requirements, believing that I would never try to sort out this family property distribution. But then, just as I decided to share the property, he tried to convince me not to do it at that moment, but after some time. But I wanted it to happen at that time since I had to move somewhere else and I wanted everything to be sorted out. So, when I insisted, he had to fix a meeting for the same. Now, when I saw the will, it was something different than what I was aware about. So, I stated that there is something wrong and also told him that my grandfather had earlier given me a copy of the will to keep for any reasons I could need it. This was something he wasn’t aware of. So, he asked how I managed to get a copy of the same. On my reaction, he refused that there are no changes being made in the will and that it was the will as per my grandfather had prepared. But, since I had a copy, I never accepted that it was the same and so, I told him that I would take him to courts for this and would contest a will. Before this whole issue, I used to trust him as a real brother and we were also too familiar with each other. But after this issue, our relation took such a cruel turning point that no one could ever make it the same as before. So I will completely accept the fact that relations weaken and affect very badly due to property will disputes.
The issue will not end until you fight for yourself!
Now, for challenging a will, it was really a big deal for a normal person to act such a thing. But I had decided I will not stop until I get my right. So, with this, I filed a suit against him and decided to sue him for such. Again, he denied and hired an advocate, and further challenged me to defeat me in the court. I, although having no other proof of the copy being original, tried my best to get an advocate to solve my issue since in such will disputes, original documents are usually a must. My advocate told me that I could prove my point by finding out the lawyer who had originally made the will with my grandfather. I never knew who made it since I never had any idea when had my grandfather made the will. But somehow I managed to get the contact of that lawyer with the help of some relatives who had this knowledge of the lawyer who usually helped my grandfather with some issues. And hence I proved my case but sill he gave some other contentions and I could not actually get the whole amount I was entitled to, yet I got a part of it. The good part is, my cousin also could not succeed what actually he was up to and thus, the issue was sorted out, but our relation got disturbed and could never take the same point that it earlier had.

When I decided to contest a will, I had a major long-term effect on relationships within the family. I was curious to know about the will or the legal document made by the deceased prior death.
