In this article, our St. Charles will litigation lawyers explain Illinois will contests. A will contest is a challenge to the validity of a will or trust.

We also explain the most common bases for will contests, including undue influence, fraud, lack of mental capacity, and revocation.
St. Charles will contest lawyer Kevin O'Flaherty explains lack of testamentary capacity.
In this article, our St. Charles will litigation attorneys explain lack of testamentary capacity. In order to execute a valid will or trust, the person executing the document must have the requisite mental capacity, known as "testamentary capacity," to understand who his or her family members are, what property he or she owns, and what he or she is doing in disposing of the property. If the testator lacked testamentary capacity, this is a basis for invalidating the will through a will contest.
St. Charles will dispute lawyer Kevin O'Flaherty explains undue influence in Illinois will contests.
Another basis for a will contest in Illinois is "undue influence." In this article, our St. Charles will contest lawyers explain what constitutes undue influence. Undue influence occurs when someone takes a wrongful or illegal action that deprives the testator of meaningful choice when executing his or her will.
