The grantor's capacity to express his or her wishes clearly is the cornerstone and the absolute minimal pre-requisite for a valid and effective estate plan. Whether drafting a will, signing a power of attorney, or creating a trust, the attorney must be sure the clients are able to speak for themselves. But what if the will is contested for "undue influence" at estate administration? This practical legal guide focuses on both ensuring your client is of sound mind when signing legal documents and on litigating capacity after the fact of legal document creation. Find out what evidence is required and sufficient to prove or contest client capacity and undue influence - order today!
