Who did YOU hire to draft your Will?
You should be weary of who drafts your will and what estate litigation documents you are in fact signing because a will may be held invalid if the will was procured as a result of a mistake. Further, if you have other estate litigation that was previously drafted, such as a living trust, you will need a licensed California attorney to draft your will. If you have questions regarding yourliving trust in Los Angeles you should have an attorney review your estate litigation documents.
Courts have invalidated a will for mistaken belief when the testator signed a document which he or she believed was something else, for example a sales contract but was in fact a will. This is a case of a mistake where the courts will invalidate a will because it was not the testator's intent to sign a will and having the intent to create a will is one of the basic requirements of wills drafting. If you are concerned with drafting your will or have a question about an existing will which is currently in probate you should consult with a Los Angeles probate attorney.
