When Wills Are Contested

There are a number of grounds on which a will can be contested in the state of Texas. Incapacity is one of the most commonly cited. For a will to be valid, the testator must be of sound mind when the document is drafted and signed. If the testator was for any reason unable to understand the decisions he or she was making when the will was created, it may be considered invalid.

Undue influence will also invalidate a will. If an individual is wielding undue influence over the testator, the will may not reflect the true wishes of its creator. This often happens when a caretaker or medical professional becomes very close to testator, who begins to rely on this person. If this person is unethical, he or she may use his or her position to force the testator to change the will under duress.

The Effects of an Invalid Will

An invalid will can prevent the people you love from getting the possessions you wish to leave them. It can cause your estate to be tied up in probate court for months or even years, and the legal battle over your estate can cost your family money. A strong, well-crafted will can provide them the certainty of knowing they will be taken care of after your passing.
