A Will Contest occurs when there is something wrong with a Will. There are several reasons that a Will may be contested including 1) the Will was written under the influence from another person, 2) the Decedent was not of sound mind when the Will was written, 3) the Will is a forged or fraudulent document, 4) the Will is not up to date and leaves out children or does not take into account a divorce or remarriage, 5) the Will was not witnessed or signed correctly, and 6) the Will was improperly done and does not comply with Texas law.
In some instances the Testator did not have actual "testamentary capacity" or "testamentary intent" to draft a proper Will. In such a situation the Will is not valid and interested parties including a beneficiary or heir that was disinherited or lost inheritance through the invalid Will can contest the Will as being invalid. In other instances a Will was executed under undue influence and not the last wishes of the Testator.
The Texas Probate Code gives interested persons two years after a Will has been admitted to probate to institute a suit to contest a Will. There are two exceptions to this rule that can extend this statute of limitations beyond two years. These exceptions include 1) contests based upon forgery or fraud or 2) contests brought on behalf of an incapacitated person (such as a minor) who recovers capacity.
Under Texas law, an Executor of an estate has to take an oath to fulfill the wishes of the decedent's Will. Failure to properly comply with the Will and violating the oath of the executor can result in a breach of fiduciary duty lawsuit against the executor for negligently or fraudulently failing to comply with a decedent's wishes or Texas law.
Executors that commit fraud on an estate or negligently lose or destroy assets in an estate can be held responsible under Texas law for wrongful acts. If you are a beneficiary of a Will and an executor has negligently lost or intentionally stolen estate property, it is important to hire a Texas Estate Lawyer or Texas Fraudulent Executor Lawyer that can help the rightful beneficiaries seek compensation for theft of estate assets or negligence committed by an executor.
Administrators like Executors have a duty under Texas probate law to properly manage and distribute the assets of an estate. Administrators have to take an oath to fulfill Texas law in managing an estate. Failure to comply with Texas probate law and the mismanagement of an estate can result in a breach of fiduciary duty lawsuit against the administrator for failure to comply with the decedent's wishes.
Administrators that commit fraud or negligently lose or destroy assets in an estate can be held responsible under Texas law for wrongful acts. If you are an heir or beneficiary of a estate that has been mismanaged, it is important to hire a Texas Negligent or Fraudulent Administrator Lawyer that can help rightful heirs and beneficiaries seek compensation for theft or negligence by an administrator.
