Undue Influence in Illinois Will Contests

Our Illinois will dispute attorneys explain undue influence in this Learn About Law companion article.

Undue influence is a cause of action in Illinois will contests, meaning that you can use it as an argument to invalidate a will.  Undue influence occurs when the testator has his or her will overpowered by another person's wrongful actions. A key issue in undue influence will contests is whether a fiduciary duty existed between the testator and the person accused of exerting undue influence.
