Wills may be challenged regarding validity for a number of reasons. Family members, dependents and beneficiaries named in the Will may question the validity alleging that it should not be held as the last Will of the Will maker.
In order to challenge a Will, a person must have standing to do so. This means that the challenger must have an interest in the Will either as a beneficiary or if they are an eligible person on intestacy ie the next of kin in intestacy.
If any person with standing believes any wrongful actions have occurred when you made and executed your Will, then they may challenge on the grounds of invalidity.
