Do You Need to Challenge a Will in El Dorado Hills?

Estate Planning Attorney Helping You Navigate the Process

In the state of California, you have a very narrow window of time during which you are able to contest a will. The grounds on which you may contest the will are very specific. Schedule your appointment at the Law Office of Paul R. Kraft to meet with me, a skilled El Dorado Hills estate planning attorney. I can review your case and recommend the most efficient way to proceed with the challenge.

Free estate planning consultations are available for all new clients. Request one by calling my El Dorado Hills estate planning firm at (888) 487-3361.

Personalized Attention for Every Client

Knowing how to successfully contest a will requires years of experience. With more than 17 years of service, you can trust your case into my hands. If you are an heir, beneficiary, creditor, or otherwise connected to the deceased, the state of California may allow you to contest the will. As your estate planning attorney, I review your grounds for contesting the will and can honestly advise you as to whether or not you should proceed.

Grounds on which individuals often contest a will include:

  • The will was drafted while the deceased person was under duress, coerced, or otherwise manipulated
  • The deceased made the will without being of sound mind, or otherwise in a state of mental incompetence
  • The will does not meet the legal requirements for being a will

You cannot contest a will simply because you do not approve of its terms. However, if certain conditions apply, you may be able to have it altered or, in some cases, completely dismissed.
