New York Will Contests

If you did not get your fair share under a will, you may have recourse by a Will Contest. You are entitled to have an examination of the attesting witnesses. A will can be defeated if:

(1) the will was not duly executed;

(2) the testator (creator of the will) was not competent when the will was signed; or

(3) the testator was subject to undue influence. Many times the filing of objections to probate will result in your achieving a greater share of the estate.
