In Massachusetts a will can be contested on many grounds such as:


Lack of capacity - The issue is whether the testator lacked the mental capacity to create/sign the will. Will contests based upon the testator's lack of mental capacity are common types of will contests.

Undue Influence - . An undue influence probate challenge relates to whether the testator made a will freely, without being coerced by another person(s). For example, a person may pressure an elderly individual to leave all of their property/assets to that individual, omitting family members that typically would be entitled to the inheritance.

If you have any questions as to the validity of a family member’s will or are facing a will contest contact Beagan Law Office today for a free consultation at 781-393-9948.
