A will could be problematic. One legal issue that can lead to litigation is when a decedent had a valid will, but another legal instrument was later introduced that made significant changes. In such a case, it will become necessary to determine if the subsequent document(s) was legally executed, or if there was undue influence from another party. Questions about the mental capacity of the testator (person who signs the will) will be presented to the court. In some cases, a person gives all their assets and money to a caregiver, friend, church, charity or other party, leaving the original heirs little or nothing. These family members may contest the will and allege there was undue influence brought upon the testator. Breaches of fiduciary duty, mismanagement of the estate, or disputes concerning the deceased person's representative are just a few issues that could arise that will lead to the need for litigation.
