Contesting a will
Contesting a will is not something a family takes lightly, however, it may be necessary to ensure the directives of a will are valid and just. Similarly, a family may find themselves in a position where they must defend the validity of a will. James Bart Leonardi, LLC can help you if either situation arises.
In the state of Ohio, you can contest a will on the following grounds:
- The will is invalid due to error in its creation or execution
- The testator was of unsound mind when the will was created, witnessed and signed
- A beneficiary has had undue influence on the will
If a legal heir or beneficiary has a good faith belief that one of these conditions exists, they can contest the validity of the will. The burden is on the contesting party to show that the will is invalid.
When you call us, Bart Leonardi will review your will contest case, and comprehensively discuss your options.
