When what you inherit after a long period of commitment and care is just a struggle, life can seem very bitter. If the will seems unfair and you want to fight for your rights and inheritance, you should hire a lawyer and discuss further options. There are plenty of opportunities where you have to compete at will. If you are confident that the process will succeed, but you have an urgent need for cash, consider taking an advance inheritance pit.
The most common reason people make a will is because they receive very little money because the deceased person was clearly influenced. The best example is what we call “gold diggers”, people who marry rich people to get money. A 60-70 year old millionaire will surely attract many gold miners and they will try to influence the main beneficiary of the will. This could also have happened if a nurse with an amazingly large inheritance had helped the deceased. The police should intervene for this. There have been many instances where social workers have blackmailed or forced their wealthy patients to change their will.
If the deceased was mentally ill at the time of signing the will, you should try to compete for it. By giving a vague will, you have to question the extent of its inheritance. Obtain medical records indicating progressive mental retardation and show the court a valid reason to question the distribution of the inheritance.
When the will is not active under state law, it has the opportunity to compete. Pay attention to all state laws. It can be stated that a will is not valid for all forms of action which have not been properly performed, such as the presence of sufficient witnesses or non-compliance with the laws of the distribution of state inheritance.
A more serious allegation is when the will is considered a forged document or the result of fraud or forgery. There are many serious crooks around and some of them even go so far as to persuade an elderly person to sign a paper of their choice, claiming that he or she has signed something else. You will need a good lawyer to prove fraud. Also, if the will is not signed by the deceased or the signature appears to be incorrect, notify the authorities.
And there are many more opportunities where a will can be opposed. It is important to be mentally prepared for the process and to gather all available documentation.
