Strong Advocates To Protect Your Interests When There Is A Will Contest
Anytime a will is being carried out, it will come under closer scrutiny than it has before. Deficiencies and irregularities that were not known before can become apparent. If you are aware of problems with someone’s will that you have an interest in, we can help you delve into the matter, investigate it appropriately and take all necessary action to protect your best interests.
Some common bases on which one can challenge a will include:
- Incapacity — The testator was mentally incapacitated by mental illness, drugs, alcohol or some other factor that prevented him or her from fully understanding what he or she was doing at the time.
- Undue influence — Someone may have used his or her relationship with the testator to persuade him or her to make choices that he or she would not have normally made.
- Invalidity — The law has certain requirements for a will to be deemed legally valid. If those requirements were not met, the will and its terms are not valid.
- Fraud — If the will is based on false statements made to and meant to mislead the testator, the will may be found to be invalid.
