Contesting A Will In Orange County
Can I Contest A Will?
Most of the time a will goes through probate without a problem. However, if a person feels the will was written incorrectly or that it is not valid, that person can contest the will. When you find yourself in a situation where a will is being contested, you need an expert behind you to guard your interests and make sure you get what you are entitled to.
Whether you have been wrongfully excluded from a will or you need to defend against someone else’s baseless claims, the key is to be well represented.

When Can I Contest A Will?
You must have a valid legal reason for contesting a will. Simply being upset about the amount of your inheritance is not grounds for contestant. Reasons to contest a will include fraud, undue influence, mistake or loss of mental capacity.
You also must show that you have a connection to the will and have been harmed by its contents. If you weren’t named in the will, you must be able to show that you should have been named. If you were in the will and feel you should have inherited differently, you must be able to show why.
