Understanding the details of contested wills

When a person passes away, there is always the possibility that heirs and other individuals will have a variety of questions on their mind. This frequently leads to one or more people questioning the validity of a will.

The last thing anybody wants to go through when somebody passes on is a contested will. Not only can this lead to lost time, but it can also keep assets tied up.

When it comes to handling the legal matters associated with a contested will, there are many details to take into consideration:

-- Undue influence. This is when a relative or heir uses undue influence to better the chance that they are left certain assets.

-- Will that is created under duress. When a person is threatened or intimidated while creating a will, it could be considered "written under duress."

-- Testamentary capacity. This determines whether the person creating the will has the ability to do so. This includes whether the person knows who the heirs are, who they are leaving the property to, and what makes up their estate.

A will contest is nothing to take lightly. It doesn't matter how you fit into the process, if you are part of what is going on you need to know the finer details.

Understanding the details of a contested will can give you a better understanding of what will happen next and how you are going to be impacted.
