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.
  • You may be a creditor who has been shortchanged after the death of a debtor.
