What Makes a Will Invalid?


A last will and testament, which names an inheritor of an estate, may be declared invalid if certain legal ramifications are not met. Should the person who wrote the will have been mentally incapacitated, influenced unduly, a victim of fraud, or if the execution of the will did not comply with state regulations.

A will is regarded as invalid if it is made involuntarily and with pressure from an outside party. In addition, if it is made by a person who is insane, which means the person is not fully aware of the nature of the document being written or signed and isn't aware of the property and identification of the people who may inherit, it is deemed invalid. If someone makes a will but it is not legally valid, in the event of their death their estate will be shared out under certain rules, not according to the wishes expressed in the will.
