The fact that a person leaves a will does not guarantee that his/her property will be distributed according to the will’s terms. A court must generally provide an opportunity to allow others to object to the will, and a legal challenge, called a will contest, may be brought by anyone with an interest in the will who wishes to challenge the validity of the will or the terms of the will. Typical bases for a will contest include allegations that a will was inadequately executed, invalidated by a later will, is ambiguous, or was the result of incapacity, forgery or undue influence. In addition to will contests, there are numerous other types of probate litigation including breach of fiduciary duty actions (see fiduciary representation practice area), objections to a guardianship or conservatorship petition (see Guardianship or Conservatorship practice areas), and more.
