Contesting a Will in New Jersey
New Jersey and Newark Will Contest Attorneys
The death of a family member often brings surviving kin closer together. Unfortunately, the opposite is sometimes the case: after a parent, brother or sister dies, children or siblings squabble over the provisions of the will. A contested will can lead to one family member bringing a lawsuit to challenge the validity of a will or request a court's interpretation of its terms.
- You may believe that the personal representative in charge of dispersing the estate is not complying with the intent of the will.
- You may believe that an elderly person was coerced through undue influence into signing a will that unfairly affected your inheritance.
