Will Contests

Sometimes, heirs or potential heirs believe there is a reason to doubt the Will that was filed for probate. The proper procedure to contest a Will is a Will Contest.

Although the Texas Probate Code allows for any party interested in an estate to contest the Will, Will Contests are generally complicated and costly. An “interested person” is defined as one who is an heir, devisee, spouse, child, creditor, or anyone having a property right in or claim against the estate.

Reasons for contesting a will include alleged forgery and/or other fraud, as well as assertions that the testator either lacked the necessary mental capacity to make the Will or was someone upon whom undue influence was exerted. These are complex issues that have long been litigated in Texas courts the resolution of which is likely to be costly and time consuming.
