A will or trust contest is a formal objection raised against the validity of a will or trust based on the contention that the will or trust does not reflect the actual intent of the deceased person who made the will or trust, or that the will or trust is otherwise invalid. Generally it is much more difficult to contest a trust than it is to contest a will. Contesting a will generally focus on the assertion that the deceased person, called the testator, lacked the ability (what is called the testamentary capacity) to make the will, was operating under an insane delusion, or was subject to undue influence from someone else. A will may be challenged in its entirety or in part. Courts generally feel a strong obligation to uphold the final wishes of a testator, and, without compelling evidence to the contrary, the law presumes that a will is valid and accurately reflects the wishes of the person who wrote it.
