Will Contests and Probate Litigation
Texas Estate Planning Lawyer
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- The original will has been superseded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
