Lauren Nykolaychuk acted on behalf of a son seeking to prove his mother’s will in solemn form in the face of challenges by the deceased’s former spouse.

The Supreme Court considered a barrage of allegations against the son, including attempts to create delay and increased costs through additional procedural steps.

The Supreme Court found there was ample evidence to prove the will set out the deceased’s wishes and that she knew and approved of its contents. This case exemplifies the summary procedures available to litigants and counsel in estate matters who are looking for an expedient resolution.
