Protect your family with a will

3 reasons why a Will may be contested

It’s still fairly unusual for a will to be successfully challenged. But it does happen. If you make a will, then you want its terms to be fully complied with. Here are three reasons why this sometimes doesn’t happen…

  1. Where it’s proved that the testator was subject to undue influence by a person who manipulated the drafting
  2. Where it is shown that the testator lacked the mental capacity to understand aspects of the will-drafting process
  3. A variety of technical errors, including incorrect or unsigned paperwork
