Understanding the Grounds for a Will Contest in North Carolina
If you reasonably believed you were going to inherit in a loved one’s will and have now learned that you were not left what you expected, you may want to look into whether you have grounds for a will contest. Common circumstances that often lead to will contests include:
- Disinheriting a deceased spouse’s children from a prior relationship
- Cutting out family members in favor of a neighbor or elder care provider
- Leaving all of one’s money to a church or charitable organization
- Failing to treat all of one’s children equally, prior to death or in the will
While someone making a will may have the right to do any of these things, they often lead to suspicions that the testator was either incapacitated at the time he or she made a will or that he or she did so under the undue influence of someone with substantial access and control.
