The pursuit of a will contest is generally limited to an 'interested person,' which is defined by The Probate Code to include, but not be limited to, a decedent's spouse, registered domestic partner, children, heirs, testate beneficiaries, and creditors. Whether a particular person is considered an 'interested party' is determined on a case-by-case basis.

How to Contest a Will

There are many instances where a will is not as accurate as it needs to be in order to stand up against opposition. This leads to numerous disputes that are best settled with the aid of an attorney.

A will may be contested based on, but not limited to, any of the following grounds:

  • Revocation
  • Lack of capacity
  • Fraud
  • Misrepresentation
  • Menace
  • Duress
  • Undue influence
  • Mistake
  • Lack of due execution
  • Forgery

An interested party may contest a will before or after a will enters into probate with the intention to prevent probate of the tendered will or to revoke a will that has been admitted to probate but it is a timely matter. While it is a legal document, a trust is often subject to the interpretation of all involved parties so it must be made with and scrutinized for specific language. If all the details are not completely clear, a legal battle may very well ensue.
