What makes a will invalid? The primary reason why a will may not be valid is because it has not been executed in the presence of two different witnesses and in the presence of the person making the will. That person’s called a test dater and all three persons have to be present and sign in the presence of each other for the will to be valid. There are other reasons that a will, can be invalid as if the person does lacks the mental capacity to make a will. And that’s a very low threshold and that they only need to know who their relatives are and what kind of assets which they own in order to be able to make out a will. The third way to that a will, may be invalid is if it was procured by undue influence. In other words, someone made them or influenced them to make a, will naming them, usually the influencer as the beneficiary of the will. So those are the three primary reasons for why a will would be invalid. If you have any questions about that, you can give me a call at (727) 847-2288.
