35 Years Of Determining the Validity Of Wills

In order to start administering an estate, the will has to be declared valid by the courts.

However, there are many situations where the authenticity of a will can be called into question. A witness may have only signed the signature page, or a beneficiary could also have served as a witness.

The legal team at Darychuk Law has seen almost every type of question regarding the validity of a will. Serving New Westminster, as well as Port Coquitlam, Coquitlam and Port Moody, B.C., we offer solid, specific advice and guidance aimed at proving, or disproving, the validity of a will.

Helping You Determine The Will-maker's State Of Mind

In addition to technical errors, a will that meets all of the legal requirements may still be declared invalid based on:

  • Undue influence - was a spouse, child or external acquaintance influencing or threatening the will-maker at the time the will was drafted?
  • Mental Capacity - was the will-maker of sound mind when he or she drafted the will? Did he or she understand the decisions they were making?
