Losing a loved one is already a devastating process, which can be made much worse by problems arising over their will. If you are involved in a dispute regarding the validity of a will, you should consult an attorney immediately. Wills law is complicated and having an experienced attorney can make all the difference.
The validity of a will can be contested on many different grounds including undue influence, lack of mental capacity and duress. Undue influence is when the person making the will (known as the “testator”) was subject to strong influence from another party to create the will a certain way, and the will does not accurately reflect the testator’s intent.
Lack of mental capacity is when the testator did not have the right state of mind to create a will and was not capable of understanding the repercussions of the legal terms put in the will.
Duress is when the testator makes a will based on some threat or fear induced by another person. A will created under duress is not valid because it does not accurately reflect the testator’s intent.
