Contested Wills

When a loved one dies, friends and family members must learn to cope with their loss and deal with the stress and anxiety that accompanies it. This time of grief is often accompanied by a load of responsibility on particular friends and family members who may now have to deal with after-death arrangements. In some cases, a family member, either out of general concern or for other motives, may try to contest the provisions laid out in the deceased person’s will.

If you are trying to protect your loved one’s final wishes and your family from fraud or wrongdoing, the Houston wills and trusts attorneys from Garg & Associates, P.C. may be able to help you. For more information, contact our offices by calling 281-362-2865.

Claims Against a Will

Reasons a person may contest a will can include assertions of:

  • Forgery or fraud
  • A lack of mental capacity to make the will
  • Undue influence exhibited on the author by an outside source

Sometimes, these claims are made out of a genuine concern for the true wishes for the will’s author. Other times, however, the claims may be filed by a friend or relative seeking a greater share of the inheritance than he or she has been awarded.
