Wills are a crucial part of an estate plan, but these legal documents are also subject to probate. The probate process can be quite complex depending on the needs of your estate, and in this case securing skilled legal help is a must.
In business since 2003, Walk-In Wills provides New Mexico residents clear answers to their probate questions. We’ll explain how probate works and what you can do to mitigate legal issues surrounding your will. We’ll also be there to lend assistance to your family members after you’re gone if they have trouble navigating probate.
While probate is different for every estate, there are a few things you can expect during the process:
A person must be of sound mind when creating a will, meaning they’re knowingly making decisions regarding their assets. When cognitive issues are a factor, such as senility or other mental issues, the will is often called into question. Undue influence is another concern. This refers to situations where a person believes another influenced the creation of a will, either by force or coercion.
Invalidity could also be a matter of the directives contained within a will. For example, if a person makes unreasonable demands on heirs before they can receive their inheritances, the will is likely to be thrown out. Fraudulent signatures may also be claimed when the will is being probated.
