How Is a Will Contested?

A will can be contested when there is reason to believe that the terms of the document are invalid, or when an individual is concerned that they did not receive enough from the estate. The state of New York has several qualifications that can lead to an invalid will.

These qualifications include all of the following:

  • Fraud or excessive influence
  • Impaired mental capacity
  • Forgery
  • Invalid execution

If the probate court determines that any one of these issues existed when the will was created, they may invalidate the will. The more substantial your proof, the greater the chances that the will is going to be invalidated.
