Valid Reasons to Contest a Trust

Just as wills can be contested, the legitimacy of a trust can also be challenged. Family conflict after the loss of a loved one can be overwhelming, but our Palm Beach Gardens trust contest attorney is here to guide you during this time.

A trust can be contested for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Violation of state laws: Trust is not valid under Florida's trust laws; for example, it does not include valid witness signatures
  • Lack of mental capacity: Decedent was unable to make sound decisions at the time the trust was created
  • Undue influence: Decedent was coerced into appointing a trustee or financially benefiting someone against his or her wishes
  • Fraud/forgery: Signature is forged and trust is not approved by the decedent

Any type of trust can be contested but the person contesting it must hold direct personal interest in the matter. Usually, this only includes beneficiaries or people who would legally be eligible to be part of the inheritance but were excluded from the trust.
