Representation for Contested Wills and Trusts

A sound estate plan typically includes a will and one or more trusts set up for particular purposes. For example, a special needs trust plans for the care of an adult or child with a disability. Generally, these documents are legally binding. However, there are circumstances where they may be open to challenge. Some of the reasons to contest a will include:

-Sudden changes to the terms of the will or trust just prior to the death of the estate’s owner.

-Information that suggests the owner was under influence or pressure to make changes.

-Changes that may have been made fraudulently or through forgery.

-If the estate owner suffers mental incompetence during any time in the estate planning process.
