How to I challenge a Will in Massachusetts?

Charles (Guest) on Monday, February 03 2014, 04:16 PM
My parents passed away within six months of each other and I'm very concerned about the care they received during the last few years. I'd like to learn the process of challenging a will and what some of the factors that may overturn their last Will.

    The courts are seeing greater numbers of “will contests” or challenges to trusts or amendments to trusts. You may feel that you have been unfairly left out of a parent or sibling’s estate plan or inheritance through the conduct of a sibling, caretaker or other person. Thankfully, there are established procedures and strategies for challenging those actions. The two most common grounds for invalidating a will or trust are undue influence and lack of capacity. You can learn more about these two principals on my blog:
