Determining Lack of Mental Capacity in Will Contests
If your loved one was incompetent at the time his or her will was modified, any changes to the will or estate plan will be considered invalid. However, proving a senior had the mental capacity to create a will or modify it can be particularly challenging. One day dementia or Alzheimer’s could impair your loved one’s mental capacity, while the next day he or she could be fully competent.
Hoyle Law seeks to overcome this challenge by consulting industry-leading medical experts. The firm works with them to understand if dementia or Alzheimer’s affected your loved one’s ability to understand the extent of his or her assets or relationship to beneficiaries. Hoyle Law develops compelling legal arguments through incorporating evidence illustrating chronic incapacity. The firm also includes witness testimony verifying your loved one lacked the mental capacity to fully comprehend the extent of the changes to a will or estate plan.
