Will Contests And Invalid Will Guidance In Missouri
Will contests, also known as an objection to a will, are usually the result of:
- Undue influence
- Lack of mental capacity
Especially at the end of an individual’s life, he or she becomes more vulnerable and is easily manipulated into changing his or her last wishes with the influence of someone who will benefit from the changes. Filing an objection to the will or claiming an invalid will may be a necessary step to prevent an unfair distribution of assets; the probate proceeding is driven by deadlines and you may lose your ability to challenge the will if you don’t act within the deadline.
