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.
