There are a few conditions under which contesting a will or disputed wills will be legally entertained. Here are some examples of the reasons why people will be contesting a will:
Mental inadequacy. You may challenge a will on the off chance that you trust your cherished one didn't have the mental ability to compose the will.
Undue Influence. On the off chance that you trust someone else applied undue impact over your cherished one and instigated your adored one to change the dissemination under his or her will, you may challenge the will in view of undue impact
If you want to engage in a disputed will, you need to contact your solicitor as soon as possible and with him, you need to file a legal claim with the court. If you are in the receiving end, you will receive a notice from the court if the will is being contested.
Success in a disputed will, will cause the court to reinstate your loved one’s previous will. But, if there isn’t one already, the estate may be passed under the state’s intestate succession laws. The court may also invalidate the portion of the will which is not legitimate and keep the rest intact.
