Will contests take many forms. Some of the most common reasons wills are disputed include:
- Lack of testamentary capacity: The decedent was not of sound mind at the time the will was drafted or executed.
- Undue influence: The decedent was coerced or manipulated into favoring a beneficiary to the estate.
- Fraud: A will may be considered invalid if one party deceived another during its creation, execution or administration. Fraud suits often involve claims against fiduciaries made by heirs to the estate.
