When a person passes away with a will, it is possible to challenge the validity of that will. Typically the challenges to the validity of a will are lack of mental capacity, undue influence, fraud, and improper execution of the will. If the challenge is successful, then the will is deemed null and void and the person’s estate is governed by a previously executed valid will or by the laws of the state – known as intestacy.
Successfully litigating a will contests require many tactical legal decisions. The attorneys at Napierski, VanDenburgh, Napierski & O’Connor, LLP have the negotiation, litigation skills, and experience necessary to help you.
