In essence, a person that wants to challenge a will would have to file in probate court a challenge, a will challenge and basically it’s a lawsuit against the estate or against the administrator of the estate. Stating that the will should be invalidated based off of some claim for some reason, if it’s technically deficient or if the will just somehow doesn’t comply with the controlling law at the time that it’s entered into probate, or for claims of undue influence or something along those lines. Where they essentially allege that someone had something to do with the way that the will was worded or the awards that were set forth in the will in such a way so to make them invalid. That the person didn’t execute the will of their own free will, but rather due to the influence to someone else. Challenges are usually difficult to bring, however they’re brought through a probate court.
