Question of the Day: "My mother died last December and left everything to her caregiver. Can I challenge my mother’s Will, and what would I need to prove?"

Answer:  Yes, heirs have a right to challenge a family member’s Will.  However, time is of the essence in these matters as a Will contest may be barred (notwithstanding the facts) if not filed in a timely matter.  The time frame to contest is extremely short.  You should contact an attorney as soon as possible for a more in depth analysis of your case as there are numerous grounds to contest a Will, which if proved could invalidate the Will, such as fraud. forgery, lack of capacity, and undue influence.
