West Palm Beach Will Contest Attorneys

Attorney Nicole

When your loved one passed away, you were probably unprepared for the conflict your family was about to face. Unfortunately, family disputes occur all too often due to varying interpretations of a will. If your family has become divided and a lawsuit seems inevitable, make sure you have an experienced lawyer in your corner. Our attorneys at The Law Office of Nicole C. Morris, P.A., have over 25 years of combined experience handling estate and trust disputes throughout South Florida.

When Can A Will Be Contested?

A will can usually be contested by beneficiaries or anyone that the will would directly affect. Some of the allegations that can be brought against a will include:

Undue influence

Did you notice a relative or caregiver who became unusually close to your loved one just before he or she passed away? All too often, people prey on vulnerable adults to try exploiting their finances. Our lawyers are prepared to prove undue influence was used to take advantage of your loved one's inheritance intentions.

Lack of mental capacity

As people age, they often deal with Alzheimer's, dementia, Parkinson's disease and other illnesses threatening their mental capacity. The validity of your loved one's will could be called into question if you believe it was written when he or she lacked the capacity to make sound decisions.

Forgery

In order for a will to be valid, it must have a proper signature. If you believe someone forged your loved one's signature, this is a form of fraud. Our lawyers can work with handwriting experts to prove the terms of the will are invalid based on forgery concerns.
