In this article, our DuPage County will dispute lawyers explain DuPage County will contests.
A will contest can be filed if an individual believes that a will was executed when the testator was mentally incompetent, under undue influence, or defrauded. Our DuPage County will contest lawyers discuss the statute of limitations to file will contests in Illinois, who may file a petition for a will contest, who the petitioner must give notice of the will contest and the different situations in which wills can be contested. We then explain the will contest process in DuPage County, some common defenses to will contests, and how no-contest clauses in wills work.
In this article, our DuPage County will dispute lawyers explain lack of testamentary capacity as a cause of action in will contest cases.
Lack of testamentary capacity is an argument used when contesting the validity of a will. In order for a will to be valid, the person who created the will must have had the mental capacity to understand the consequences of executing the will. If an interested party can prove that the testator did not have the mental capacity to execute a will at the time the will was executed, the will may be invalidated by the probate court.
