By Fredrick P. Niemann, Esq. of Hanlon Niemann Freehold, Monmouth County New Jersey Will Contest Attorney

The manner in which the last Will was signed can be subject to challenge

Generally a will has to be in writing, (see however, a recent post discussing New Jersey’s very liberal standard for admitting to probate a writing intended as a last will) in the correct form and executed according to the New Jersey Probate code. Most of the cases dealing with improper form or execution of a will involve wills that were prepared by individuals instead of attorneys. A person will type out a will on their computer, download a form from the Internet or copy a form from a book. Since the law is very strict about the form and execution of wills, many of these wills are voided because of mistakes in their form or because of improper execution.
