Contesting a will is difficult, but sometimes necessary

When a loved one passes away, family members who are left behind might end up looking for a will or an estate plan. While that is one way that people can leave instructions for their estate after they are gone, not all family members will always agree with the will. When family members don't agree with the will, they might decide to contest it.

Contesting a will is something that can lead to serious strife in the family. When anyone contests a will, the case has to go through the probate court, which can mean a lengthy court battle that involves a considerable financial expense. Even with those points in mind, there are still some circumstances that might mean you need to contest the will in order to ensure that your loved one's assets are properly distributed.

We know that you don't want to have to battle it out with your family in court over a will. When you feel that the will isn't correct, you might not have another choice. There are several reasons why you might feel the will isn't valid. You may think your loved one wasn't mentally competent or that he or she was coerced into creating the will. We can work with you to determine if there is evidence that your thoughts are factual.

As you fight to prove that the will wasn't legal, we can help you by bringing in necessary experts to help prove your side of the case. Medical experts and forensic document specialists are two possibilities that might help you to prove that your loved one's will wasn't legal.
