Nashville Estate Litigation Lawyer
Our Nashville Probate Attorney Can Fight for the Outcome You Need
Sadly, there are occasions in which an individual may challenge the validity of a Will or a creditor can place a claim on the estate to secure payment. You could face a great deal of opposition in this situation, so it is important to know what steps you can take to pursue the outcome that you need. There are various ways that an individual could contest a Will, including the following:
- Undue influence claims - The individual was unjustly influenced by a third party when preparing their Will or was bribed or threatened when preparing the Will.
- Claims of breach of fiduciary duty - This can occur with an abuse of powers of attorney, such as when the entrusted individual changes / creates a Will for the incapacitated individual that unjustly names beneficiaries contrary to the individual's wishes.
- Lack of Competency of the Testator - The person signing a Will must have the legal capacity to sign a Will.
