Even the best intended wills may be challenged if beneficiaries feel slighted. McMullen discusses various challenges to wills which may be based on grounds of public policy, lack of formalities, undue influence, or lack of testamentary capacity. Reasons for disputes are explored and methods, both technical and non-technical, for avoiding challenges are suggested to help provide for the legacy of a peaceful family.
