A will contest means that the heirs of an estate do not feel that they are receiving what they are rightfully owed from a will or that the estate is not being properly handled. After a loved one has passed away, the will is submitted to the probate court to determine the validity of the document. An executor will then handle the terms of the will and the deceased’s estate. In many instances, the recipients of the will may question whether or not the signed will was what the deceased would have wanted.

Litigation among family members can be costly, both personally and financially, not to mention uncomfortable for clients.

  • The will was not signed according to Texas state laws
  • The deceased lacked the capacity to sign and validate the will
  • The deceased was unduly influenced into signing the will
