Overturning a Will
How to overturn a Will
You can overturn a Will on a variety of grounds. For example, you can challenge the validity of a Will because you think it was made at a time when the Will maker was not of sound mind, or was unduly influenced or pressured by another person. You can also overturn a Will because it doesn’t adequately provide for you.
Anyone who had a close and significant relationship with the deceased—such as a child, spouse or partner—may be eligible to overturn the provisions of a Will.
