Will Contests and Probate Litigation
Estate Planning Lawyer in Corpus Christi
In property law, a will contest occurs when a person challenges the validity of a will. If an individual believes a will does not reflect the true intent of the testator (the party who drafted the will), they may decide to contest it. Anyone with an interest in the estate can file a challenge and try to have the will thrown out or amended.
A will can be challenged for several reasons, including:
The mental capacity of the person making the will is in question
The original will has been superseded
Creation of the will was made under duress, coercion, or undue influence
Forgery was involved in the drafting of the will
The will failed to follow state requirements for execution
