Discovery and Evidence In A Will Contest and Proving the Decedents Intent

In this video, our Polk County will contest attorneys explain how an interested party in a will contest is someone who has actually been harmed as the result of a will or a modification of a will. Unfortunately, simply being left out of a will doesn’t necessarily make someone an interested party (unless two versions of a will exist with one splitting the estate between beneficiaries and another giving everything to one beneficiary). A will challenge hinges on the ability of the person contesting the will to prove that a will is invalid due to reasons such as fraud, forgery, compulsion, etc. The Will Challenge Petition must be completed with care and with thoughts to future arguments during the court hearing.

In this episode, our Polk County attorney will discuss what evidence can be used in a will contest.

How to contest a Trust in Iowa

In this video, our Polk County will contest attorneys explain how a trust is a legally binding arrangement between three parties where a trustor grants a trustee permission to hold assets on behalf of a beneficiary.

There are several types of trusts, including:

  • Charitable trusts
  • Living trusts
  • Spendthrift trusts
  • Totten trusts
