Addressing Lack Of Mental Capacity Claims

One of the ways someone can challenge a will is by questioning the lack of mental capacity of the testator during the creation of the will. But challenging the validity of a will or trust based on lack of mental capacity is a sensitive and complex issue. Such claims arise when it is believed that the individual who created the document did not possess the necessary mental state to understand the implications of their decisions. Proving the mental capacity (or lack thereof) is difficult without the guidance of a skilled California attorney.
