Will being contested based on religious views

Posted on February 16th, 2012 No Comments

The will of an 87-year-old woman, who passed away in 2010, is being contested by her children and grandchildren.

According to the documents, the woman had four separate children that she intended to leave an equal share of her assets to. Her youngest daughter passed away three years before she did, and therefore in the will it shows that her daughter’s share would be passed onto her granddaughter.

The other three children are protesting this exchange of assets, because they know that their mother did not intend for her granddaughter to benefit at all from her will. The reason for the contested views is focused on the granddaughter living with her fiance for 18 months before they were married. The elderly woman was strongly connected to the Catholic faith, and did not approve of cohabitation before marriage.

The judge in the case ruled in favor of the three remaining children, and cut the granddaughter out of the will.
