Boone NC Wills and Estates Attorneys & Lawyers
The creator of a will or trust has the right to dispose of his or her assets in any manner that is legal. However, disputes among family members regarding the validity or interpretation of wills or the administration of estates are commonplace and often complex and complicated.
A potential heir who believes that an existing will or trust document does not accurately reflect the intent of the testator (the creator of the will or trust) can file a caveat, or a written objection. There are a number of reasons one can legally contest a will, but the most common are:
• Mental Capacity of the Testator of the Will
• Undue Influence upon the Testator
• Fraud or Duress Imposed upon the Testator
• Executor Misconduct
