Will Contests

A would-be heir or beneficiary can challenge the validity of a will for a variety of reasons. A will is typically contested if it doesn't fulfill certain legal requirements or the maker of the will was not of age or sound mind. Challenging a will is a complicated legal task, and you will need help from an experienced attorney. Learn more.
