Ask an Attorney - How to Dispute or Contest a Will
Before you contest or challenge a will, it is important to find out what the consequences will be in case you lose the contest. When you contest a will, you ask a judge or jury to void the will so that its effects will be defeated. There are procedures and deadlines that you will need to follow in order to contest a will. You only have a short amount of time from the date that a will is admitted to probate to file a lawsuit contesting the will.
