New Jersey Will Contests

Posted on Mon Aug 13, 2012, on Will Contests and Will Challenges

Any number of reasons may cause a contest. Sometimes a will contest stems from the deceased’s discomfort with death and taxes, so issues that should have been addressed during lifetime are left unresolved and can only be settled in the Surrogate’s Court. Some Will contests are due to bad drafting by attorneys not trained and experienced in wills, trusts and estate planning. Sometimes dishonest actions by dishonest people cause will contests. As veteran Will Contest Attorneys we get to see the good, the bad and the ugly side of people. From Sussex County in the North, to Cape May County in the south, greed will often raise its ugly head when a person with assets is in a weakened state and susceptible to undue influence.

The parties to a will contest may vary. Our will contest lawyers have represented heirs, descendants, family members who were excluded or received reduced amounts in the Will and charities or other non-profits who the deceased promised a share of the estate. If charities are involved, the attorney general may also become a party to the contest.

Most people are honest, but some people are not.

As New Jersey Challenge Attorneys, we focus our litigation practice exclusively on Will Challenges, Will Contests and other estate disputes. Over our many years as Will Challenge Lawyers we have seen the dishonest things that some people will do; including forging wills and using undue influence on people to sign wills.

Time Limits, 4 months or 6 months: If you feel a Will Challenge need be made, act quickly or you may lose your chance for challenging the Will. If you are a New Jersey resident, you only have four months to file your petition or if you are a non-New Jersey resident you have only six months. If you delay, you are bared from filing your Will Challenge and a wrong might go undiscovered. It would be even better if you contact us prior to the Will being filed, as our Will Challenge Lawyers might be able to prevent the Will’s even be filed with the Surrogate.
