When a close friend or family member dies, the immediate aftermath can make it difficult to make informed and rational decisions. However, if you feel that you or a member of your family has been excluded or neglected in a deceased person’s will, it is essential that you take action as early as possible.
Disputing a will and testament can be daunting and upsetting at the best of times. Unfortunately, it is often necessary to contest the terms of a will on various grounds. Examples of which include the following:
- The will is invalid or unenforceable
- The will contains vague or unclear information
- The will was drafted under duress
- The person who wrote the will was not in sound mind
- The will was forged or edited illegally
- The will doesn’t cover all the person’s assets
