Klenk Law

Forgery

Forgery, in the context of a Will Contest, means being able to prove that someone other than the testator signed the Will.

Proving a Will is the Result of Forgery.

The judge hearing a Will Contest case can find the Will invalid due to Forgery only if he or she hears the proper evidence. Gathering this evidence will require depositions, expert witnesses such as handwriting analysts, interrogatories, witness interviews, subpoenaed documents and evidence presented following the Rules of Evidence and subject to objections by the Will’s proponent. Our experienced Will Contest Attorney will walk you through every step of this complicated journey.

Forgery Will Challenge Evidence.

Proving Forgery often requires retaining a handwriting expert. Circumstance and supporting evidence reinforce the handwriting expert’s findings.

Who May Bring a Forgery Will Contest Challenge?

Only an “interested party” may bring a Forgery Will Contest Challenge. A person would become an interested party if the Forgery damaged them financially.

For example, if a valid 2010 Will excludes Bob, but in 2017 John submits a forged Will that gives Bob a cash gift, Bob has no standing to challenge the 2017 Will. This is because if the 2017 Will is tossed out, Bob gains nothing. In fact, he loses money.
