Why You Might Need to Contest a Will

  • Doubts about the Will’s Validity: If you suspect the will was created under duress, fraud, or undue influence, it may be grounds for contestation.
  • Lack of Testamentary Capacity: Contesting a will is possible if there’s reason to believe the testator lacked the mental capacity to understand the implications of the will at the time of its creation.
  • Issues with Will Execution: A will must be executed correctly according to legal standards. Any deviation might make it contestable.
  • Outdated Will Provisions: If newer documents exist that contradict the existing will, you may have a case to contest.
