Can You Contest a Will in Texas?

indexWhat We May Not Like

Not everyone likes the outcome of a Will reading.  Usually one or two heirs think cash or other benefits should be distributed.  When it doesn’t happen as expected, they decide to contest the Will, and someone needs a lawyer in Wichita Falls, Texas.

What Could Have Happened?

I thought my dad’s Will would certainly include me.  In fact, the new Hummer sitting in the driveway convinced me that I would soon be on Easy Street.  What could happened?

Perhaps that woman my father married after my mother passed away caused problems.  Maybe my brother and sister convinced Dad to change it.  They received cash, and I got his  lousy gold watch and a few knickknacks.  I considered it unfair, waiting all this time and getting so little.

Why would he leave a chunk to his wife and the rest to some project none of the family ever heard about?  Oh, the injustice of it all!  His mind couldn’t have been “sound”, and I wasn’t tolerating it.

What to Do?

Perusing through all the Wichita Falls Attorneys I knew, one stood out.  I considered Mark Barber, Attorney at Law first because he helped me with my Will.  The helpful receptionist scheduled my appointment and encouraged me to have a look at Mark’s website.

The Consultation with Mark Barber

Mark advised about the absence of a will or the successful contesting.  He said the laws of descent and distribution in Texas determines the distribution of assets.  There are many potential results, depending on the situation.  I recommend Mark Barber, Attorney at Law in Wichita Falls, Texas, to anyone who wants to contest a Will.

Reasons for Contesting a Will

A Will may be legitimately contested in Texas if you believe there was undue influence upon the family member or if the family member wasn’t in full control of their faculties.  It may also be contested if the Will isn’t properly executed or upon suspicion of fraud.

In the end, I couldn’t say my father was crazy or that anyone influenced him. He had written the Will about ten years ago, just after marrying his new wife.
