Challenging An Unfair Will? A Beginner’s Overview

It’s an unfortunate fact that many wills are contested following the death of an estate owner. The purpose of a legally binding will is to stipulate how those estate assets will be distributed to the beneficiaries of the estate. Historically, will dispute are very common when the patriarch/matriarch of a large, wealthy family passes away.

Indeed, there are many ways for people to contest or dispute the legality of a person’s final wishes. For example, if you believe that you have been unfairly treated or were a dependent of the person (and have been left little or nothing at all), then you should consider your legal options. Likewise, if you believe the person’s will was manufactured while the person was under duress or not in a fit state of mind (which is common), then you should undoubtedly contest what is stipulated in the will.
