Our Naperville will contest lawyers want you to better understand what effect lack of testamentary capacity has on your will contest case.
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 or trust must have had the mental capacity to understand the consequences of executing the will or trust. If someone has cause to believe that the person who created teh will did not have the testamentary or mental capacity to execute a will, the will can be contested based on lack of mental capacity.
