Contesting a Will: Your Rights as an Heir is an essential guide for anyone that feels that they have been wrongfully written out of a loved one's will.
If this has happened to you, you have every right to be shocked and upset. It's quite possible the will in question might not accurately reflect the true wishes and desires of your recently-deceased loved one.
If you don't take action NOW, the true wishes and desires of your loved one might never be carried out, and you will lose access to assets that are rightfully yours.
You will learn:
The function the Probate Court plays in your will contest: If you are considering contesting the validity of a will, you will need to familiarize yourself with the Probate Court in the county the decedent resided in at the time of their passing.
The two ways to prove a will does not reflect what the decedent actually wanted: We will explain to you what "lack of testamentary capacity" and "undue influence" are.
What happens if you 'win': It is important to know what would happen if you successfully challenge a will. Sometimes, it is in your best interest not to challenge the will in the first place.
