What are the grounds for contesting a will?

Video Transcript

The most common grounds for contesting a will include first, if the original will is unable to be found when the decedent passes, it will be presumed that the will was destroyed. Next, a will can be contested if it was not signed in accordance with Florida law, meaning that it was not signed with the correct number of witnesses. Third, the will can be contested if the testator lacked the requisite mental capacity to sign the will at the time that it was executed. Finally, a will can be executed, if it is the product of coercion, duress or undue influence.
