Will Challenges or Probate Challenges in Orlando, FL

When an estate is opened in probate, often there are disputes that arise between family members and friends or associates of the deceased. There are several ways in which individuals could dispute the ongoing procedure of probate in a decedent's estate, or contesting the decedent's will. If there is a mistake made in the execution or signing and witnessing of a will, a will contest will be claimed for a mistake in execution. If the will is not validly executed, the will may be declared null and void. At other times, one may believe that the decedent was unduly influenced by someone in making the provisions in the will, and if they can prove that the decedent did not freely make the will, or someone coerced them into certain gifts or provisions in the will, the will could be declared invalid.

Likewise, will contests are sometimes based on an allegation that the decedent was not competent or did not have the testamentary capacity to make the will. This usually requires medical testimony and records to be examined in order to prove whether or not the decedent had the mental capacity to understand what they were doing when they made the will. The decedent may have been under heavy medication or may be an aged individual who was easily swayed by certain members of his family to make provisions in the will.
