Diligent Advocacy Throughout All Stages Of A Will Contest

Circumstances that may give rise to a will contest include: ​

  • Undue influence — Where an individual attempts to induce the testator into preparing a will in which he or she will benefit.
  • Fraud in the inducement — Where an individual gives false information to the testator in an attempt to get him or her to execute or amend a will and the testator does so.
  • Fraud in the execution — Where an individual successfully convinces the testator to sign a will when the testator believes it is another document.
  • Lack of testamentary capacity — Where a testator did not have the mental capacity to execute a valid will.
