From our “Ask a Question” mailbag: My mother’s caregiver informed us at the funeral that my mother signed a will giving the caregiver all her money. What can we do?
In general, if she has not filed the will yet, you could have an experienced will contest lawyer file paperwork to stop her from filing the will. You can then take stock of the situation. You will then know when the will was signed, who are the witnesses, if the signature is your mother’s, and who drafted the will. You can also surmise your mother’s mental state on the date the will was signed. If you believe the will is not the result of your mother’s true intent, then you can have your will contest lawyer file the appropriate challenge.
Speed is necessary in order to prevent the will from being filed, so I suggest that you act quickly.
If would like more information about will challenges, feel free to contact our office for a free consultation with one of our will contest lawyers.
