If you are seeking to contest a will or defend a will in New Mexico, we will help determine whether or not the will was improperly executed. Examples of improper execution of a will include:
- Testamentary capacity (the testator was not of “sound mind” when writing the will),
- Fraud (the testator was tricked into signing the will—believing it to be another type of document)
- Undue influence (someone—usually a family member—coerced the testator to write the will in that manner), and
- Unlawful (the will wasn’t signed in accordance with New Mexico state law).
At The Jones Firm, our estate lawyers have extensive experience in will contest litigation and have the knowledge and skills necessary to determine whether the will was written by a person not of “sound mind,” was procured by fraud, undue influence, or was drafted unlawfully.
No Contest Wills
Contesting a will in New Mexico can be complex because of the possibility that the will was drafted with a “no contest” clause. No Contest wills are written in an attempt to dissuade beneficiaries from contesting the inheritance. Our experienced estate attorneys have an intimate knowledge of the probate process and will fight aggressively to protect your best interests and rights.
