Wills & Trust Contests in Riverside

What makes a will or trust valid?

Do you believe that a late family member’s will or trust does not accurately reflect their wishes? In order to legally execute a trust or will, you must be of sound mind and be able to understand your assets and the effects of your actions completely with regards to yourself and your family members. Our experienced Riverside probate litigation lawyer at Sandoval Legacy Group, a Division of Holstrom, Block & Parke APLC can help you fight for your proper inheritance if you think your late loved one did not understand their actions or if you believe their will or trust is invalid.

Reasons for Contesting a Will or Trust

Contesting a will or trust usually is based on a lack of testamentary capacity of the creator of the will or trust, or the undue influence of another individual. Lack of testamentary capacity occurs when a testator does not fully understand his or her assets, the nature of a will or the importance of providing an inheritance for immediate family members who would inherit the property without a will. Undue influence occurs when an individual puts great pressure on another person with the intent to dramatically change the way he or she is distributing assets. When the testator does completely understand what he or she is doing, it can seriously affect how the estate is distributed during the testator or trust maker’s lifetime, as well as how property is distributed after he or she passes.
