Contesting a Will

There are certain individuals who have the right to contest your Will even if they are specifically disinherited, whether or not they are named as a beneficiary under your Will or if they were left with a disproportionate share of your estate. A disinherited child has the right to challenge or contest your Will because, if you died without a Will, your child would receive a share of your estate through the laws of intestacy.
