Challenging The Legitimacy Of Wills In Oakland County

A will is designed to provide family members with a roadmap outlining how assets should be distributed and other important affairs handled after a loved one passes away. When a will is poorly written using vague terms or contradictory statements, family members naturally fight over how much money they were intended to inherit. Wills can also be contested with concerns that fraud or undue influence occurred. Attorney James Warr has extensive experience handling contested wills based on allegations of:

  • Lack of mental capacity — If your loved one was suffering from dementia or Alzheimer's at the time his or her will was created, you may have grounds to contest the will claiming he or she lacked the mental capacity to make sound decisions.
  • Undue influence — Senior citizens often rely on relatives, family friends and caregivers to help with their day-to-day needs and financial affairs. This can put seniors in a vulnerable position. If you believe someone else manipulated your loved one or used undue influence to gain a larger share of his or her inheritance, you can contest the terms of the will in probate litigation.
  • Invalid will — In order for a will to be valid, the testator who created the will must have the mental capacity to fully understand the terms being established. The will would also need to be signed by the testator. If you believe your loved one's signature was forged or he or she was wrongfully influenced, you may have a valid reason to contest the will.
  • Breach of fiduciary duty — If you believe the executor has failed to follow the intentions of the will for his or her own financial gain, this is considered a breach of fiduciary duty. Estate administration and probate lawyer James Warr can help you take action to preserve your loved one's intentions.
