In this article, our Winnebago County will contest attorneys discuss who has standing to contest as well as the process of contention and the statute of limitations for filing a will contest.
Will contests are claims against a will due to undue influence, mental incompetence, fraud or another impropriety. When a will is contested, the filing party is essentially asking for probate court to step in and invalidate the will.
Undue influence is a cause of action in Winnebago County will contests that look to show a basis to have a will invalidated. This occurs when the testator has their will overpowered by another part's wrongful actions. One of the keys to undue influence during will contests is whether a fiduciary duty existed between the person accused of using undue influence and the testator. In this article, our Winnebago County will contest attorneys examine undue influence in will contests and give you the information you need to understand what it is and how they are used in will contests.
