Grounds for Contesting a Will

The grounds for contesting a will fall into four different categories. These include:

  • The will was not signed in agreement with state laws
  • The testator lacked the capacity to understand what they were signing
  • The testator was influenced by another to sign the will
  • The will was obtained through fraud

In each of these situations, proving the allegations can be quite difficult. However, qualified legal representation can significantly improve your case’s chances of success.
