Reasons for Challenging a Will or Trust in Michigan
Contesting a will or a trust is a complicated process requiring large amounts of medical proof. This makes it critical to consult with a knowledgeable lawyer early on in order to begin building your case as soon as possible. There are many reasons that a will may be challenged, including:
- Undue influence
- Lack of capacity
- Abuse of fiduciary duties involving powers of attorney
