Make your Will the right way

This picture represents those individuals or entities that must consent to the probate of a Will or be cited to appear in court before the Will is deemed valid. These individuals or entities have a right to object against the Will. Typical reasons to object against a Will include:

1. Lack of due execution

2. Forgery

3. Lack of testamentary capacity

4. Undue influence

5. Mistake, fraud or duress

It is rather difficult to have an attorney drafted and executed Will thrown out. A Will contest is more likely to occur when a layperson attempts to draft and execute his or her own Will.
