Who Can Contest a Will or Trust in Florida?

A common question asked by someone having concerns about fraud or other wrongdoing in conjunction with the procurement or execution of their loved one’s or friend’s will is “who can contest a will or trust in Florida?” In legal circles, the question of whether any given individual (or entity) has the legal ability or authority to challenge a will or trust is often referred to as determining whether that person or entity has “standing.” Usually, the notion of standing considers whether a person or entity has a sufficient interest at stake in the litigation so as to make the case a true controversy between the parties.
