Revoking, Challenging or Changing a Will

It's perhaps understandable that some people become complacent after drafting a will, even if the will is years or even decades old. Many people assume that as long as they have some form of will in place, all of their intentions--including those that are unstated--will be honored. Unfortunately, the assumption that a court or other estate administrator can read minds can lead to family disputes and to expensive lawsuits. This section provides information on updating or revoking a will, and information about contesting one is also provided. You'll find articles and other resources on the process for amending a will, information about heirship and inheritance laws, a discussion of the risks with an outdated will, and more.
