MICHIGAN WILL PRACTICE
Drafting a Will. A good estate plan provides for the transfer of property upon death with the least amount of estate tax liability, other costs and extended time. A will is part of an estate plan and can stand alone or include a wide range of trusts, including trusts intended to limit tax liability and trusts intended to protect the spouse and children. We tailor each will we draft to the needs of our clients. We have had decades of experience helping clients who desire to transfer a business, fixed assets or a farm to their children.
Contesting a Will. A will contest in Michigan can be based on a number of grounds, including the following:
- The Michigan Will Was Improperly Drafted. A will can be contested in Michigan on the grounds that it was not properly drafted, signed, or witnessed as required by Michigan law.
- The Testator Was Not Mentally Competent. Under Michigan law, a testator (the person who died and whose property is being distributed by a will) is required to be mentally competent or the will can be declared null and void.
- Undue Influence. If someone pressures a testator to execute a will, the will can be declared null and void. There are a number of scenarios that can lead to undue influence. Often the person exerting undue influence is a relative, friend, trusted advisor, or health care worker who seeks to receive part of an estate.
