Contested Estate Attorneys Serving Cook County and Will County

Probate does not always run smoothly, even with a will or trust in place. Probate litigation can follow if a legal challenge is made to any of these documents. Our attorneys represent both sides of probate litigation and examine all estate planning documents to determine the circumstances of will or trust challenges.

Anderson and Associates, P.C. also aids clients in disputes involving the administration of wills or trusts. Those involved as administrators of a will or trust, such as executors and trustees, have a legal duty to follow the wishes of the deceased. Our law firm can help with accusations of fraud and probate litigation, if necessary, on both sides of a dispute.

Contesting a Will in Cook County, IL

Probate litigation is something family members or beneficiaries may feel the need to pursue if a will has not been administered properly. This can occur when a relative is not included in an inheritance, or when a will has been suspiciously altered before death. Challenging the validity of a will can happen under the following grounds:

  • Mental capacity – Challenging whether the testator was of sound mental capacity when the will was executed or revised.
  • Undue influence – Challenging whether the testator was pressured or forced into creating or rewriting the will.
  • Improper execution – Challenging whether the will was contracted according to state laws.
  • Fraud – Challenging whether the testator was tricked into signing the will.

Challenging a will can prove to be difficult, especially because the testator is deceased. Our attorneys are skilled in contesting wills and know how to investigate these matters in depth. Our main goal is to protect our clients' rights and to respect the wishes of the testator.
