Why Does Someone Contest a Will?

There is any number of reasons why someone might contest a will. In the most extreme cases, an example would be that a wealthy person dies and a caregiver contests the will with the hope of receiving money. However, without proof that the challenger will gain if the challenge is successful, a judge is likely to dismiss that case. A will contest law firm Cherry Hill, NJ residents hire such as ours can review the circumstances to determine if the person’s argument will likely hold up in court.

Here are some of the most common (and valid) arguments used when a person contests a will:

  •          The deceased excluded somebody, but they claim the deceased promised to bequeath them something at death. The claim is that the promise was a binding contract.  The person is a relative, long-term friend, employee or coworker, etc.
  •          The will includes someone, but they claim the deceased promised to bequeath to them more of what they inherited. Typical examples include money or possessions. Again, the challenger believes this promise took the form of a contract.
  •         They claim that the will was forged, or is not the last will and testament.  Instead, they believe a different will or a missing will is the most current will.  The challenger hopes to have their will followed instead of the will that the estate executor is using.
  •         The challenger believes someone forced or unduly influenced the deceased to write their will the way they wrote it. Further, if that hadn’t happened, they would have written it very differently and to the benefit of the person contesting the will.
  •         The deceased was not in their right mind due to illness, dementia, depression, or another reason. Therefore the deceased did not understand the consequences of how they wrote their will.

Peter provided outstanding advice and preparation of a will and trusts.

Peter was excellent. He explained everything very clearly and is super friendly. My wife and I originally tried using a lawyer through group legal coverage, but unfortunately the old adage - "you get what you pay for" - applied to the other lawyer, and we decided to go with a real professional.

When it came down to picking the right attorney to handle my affairs, I knew right away it was this firm. From speaking to their secretary to speaking to Peter I knew I was making the right decision. After only a few mins Peter knew right away what I was looking for and handled all my questions professionally and even gave me great feedback that put my mind at ease. All that without even giving a single penny! So of course I hired him! So far so good...

Like another reviewer, I contacted Peter through his website using the free consultation link, for a question regarding PA inheritance taxes. The question was quite technical and difficult to explain, and the answer was nowhere to be found on the web. Peter grasped precisely what I was asking, and provided a clear, helpful response (with a touch of humor) the very next day.

Peter is excellent. I had a very complicated situation with my parents' estate planning and potential Medicaid needs.

He earned my trust, and more importantly, my parents' trust in a 45 mins consultation period. Highly recommend Peter. He is very easy to work with.
