Contesting A Will
Have you been robbed of your rightful inheritance? Were you disinherited because someone influenced your loved one into cutting you out? Is the family trust being mishandled and the money squandered? Did your spouse leave all of his or her assets to their children from a first marriage? Can you challenge your father’s will if he left everything to his new young wife? Did your parents disinherit you years ago and forget to change their will after you reconciled?
Whenever death and money are involved, things can get messy. But you DO have rights to fight back through probate or trust litigation. If you’re the beneficiary of a will or trust, and have questions about your rights, contact Buckman and Buckman, P.A., for an estate litigation case review.
When a will or trust is contested, it’s often because of undue influence from another party, or mental incapacity of the person creating the will. Typically these two circumstances go hand in hand. When the person who creates a will isn’t mentally capable of making legal decisions, it’s very easy for someone to influence their actions. But there are ways to protect your rights and demand that beneficiaries explain themselves in court before a judge.
