Any person interested in a Will, whether as an heir, a creditor or otherwise, may contest the validity of a Will. This is a time-sensitive matter, as objections must be made within a proscribed period of time. The issues involved in a Will contest are often complicated, as there are many intricate facts that must be evaluated in order to determine if an estate plan was valid. The attorneys at Boyce Law Firm have extensive experience and proven success in both defending and challenging Wills. Whether the issues involve questionable competency of the deceased individual who made the Will, potential errors in the execution of the Will, or allegations or undue influence, our team will guide you through this often rocky road.
