On What Grounds Can A Will Be Contested?
When contesting a will, there are many grounds to base the challenge, including:
- Undue influence
- Lack of capacity
- Accusations of forgery
Estate litigation can arise from many different circumstances during the probate of a will. Someone may challenge another’s administration of an estate, disputing the administrator’s actions or inactions. For example, the administrator may be accused of theft from the estate, delay or breaching fiduciary duties.
