ESTATE LAWYER & WILLS


Court Applications and Estate Litigation


The person making a will is called a Testator. The Testator must have the capacity to understand what the will says, know what assets make up the estate, and approve the contents of the will for it to be valid.

The validity of the will comes into question if the Testator does not understand how his/her assets are supposed to be dealt with after death, does not understand the extent of the property being disposed of, and who might be the beneficiary/ies.

The first step is to meet with a lawyer who will investigate the facts and provide legal options.
