What do you know about contested wills?

As you create an estate plan, it's important to make all the right decisions. Doing things right at the present time will save your family a lot of headaches in the future.

A contested will is not something that anybody wants to deal with. However, this comes into play time and time again. The reason for a contested will is simple: One party questions the validity of the will for some reason.

Some of the most common reasons for a contested will include:

-- A will that is created under duress. When somebody is threatened when created a will, it is known as being written under duress.

-- Undue influence. Did an heir influence the person to leave him or her significant property?

-- Testamentary capacity. This addresses the details of whether or not the person creating the will had the ability to do so with a clear mind.

When creating an estate plan, you should be as clear as possible to help your loved ones avoid this messy situation. If you find yourself in the middle of a will contest, it's a must to understand what you are up against.
