Reasons to contest a will

When it comes to estate matters, making sense of the situation can be challenging. Often, people in this position are already going through emotional pain after the loss of a loved one and many are unsure of which steps they should take next. Unfortunately, wills and other estate plans are not always handled properly after someone passes away, which can lead to all sorts of problems. Our law firm knows how devastating this can be for entire families across all of New York and we believe that it is very important to address these types of problems properly.

You may want to contest a will for a number of reasons. For example, you may believe that your loved one was coerced into making changes to their will before they passed as a result of undue influence. Or, perhaps you believe that the will has not been executed properly, such as a will which was not signed correctly. Furthermore, you might believe that a will is not valid because the person who set it up was not of sound mind.

Regardless of the reason why you decide to contest a will, you need to be prepared. On top of preparing for court, you may want to get ready for other difficulties that could arise, such as a dispute with one of your relatives. If you navigate to our page on probate and will contests, you will be able to access more material concerning undue influence and other reasons why wills are contested.
