A number of factors may lead to estate litigation. Claims are likely to arise when a non-family caregiver is granted a significant portion or the entirety of an estate. Other typical scenarios involve a member of the immediate family taking the decedent to an attorney near the end of their life and exerting influence over them to leave everything to such person.
A will can be set aside if one can prove duress, undue influence, or if it can be established that the maker of the will was not of sound mind when it was signed. Will contests also arise in cases where unclear or ambiguous language is used within the will.
