A will should be a safeguard set to protect the rights of a family or beneficiaries. There are times when that safeguard is challenged by one or more of its beneficiaries or those who thought they would benefit from the estate. Such times can be injurious to a family’s cohesiveness. Will contests based on challenges to the competency of a person to make a will, claims of undue influence, or mistakes in the execution of a will are the most frequent type of estate litigation. Litigation may also arise from lost or missing wills or leaving heirs such as spouses or children out of a will. You need to reach out for legal recourse before too much damage is done to family ties.
