Belleville, St. Clair County Will and Trust Contests

A Will is a legal document with instructions for the distribution of money and property after death.  A Trust is a plan for the distribution of assets of an estate.  Family members and others are often unsure whether a Will or Trust is being administered properly or as intended.  If you need to contest or defend an estate plan, Blake Law Group P.C. can help you. Our attorneys have considerable experience litigating Will and Trust Contests in probate court in Belleville, St. Clair County, Illinois.

When Should you Dispute a Will or Trust?

Contesting a will or trust is complicated matter.  A free consultation from Blake Law Group P.C., can determine whether you have the legal grounds for successful Will and Trust challenges.  Any challenge must be grounded in at least one of the following areas: Capacity, Fraud, Influence, or the existence of Multiple Wills.  A will may also be invalid if it does not meet State law requirements.

  • Capacity: Did the person making the Will or Trust have the mental capacity to make rational decisions when it was drafted?
  • Fraud: Is the Will or Trust invalid due to errors, deceit by a third party or illegally written?
  • Influence: Are the contents of the Will or Trust the result of undue pressure placed upon on the deceased.
  • Multiple Wills: Sometimes, a person will have made multiple Wills and Trusts, and litigation is the only means to resolve which one is valid.
