In the event a person executes or signs a legal document, such as a will or trust, and that person did not understand what he or she was doing, then the document may not be valid. The legal term is “capacity”. Does that person have the capacity to execute a legal document? That can be tremendously important for the reason that it can invalidate what a person has signed and may change the distribution of a person’s assets entirely.
This type of case does not happen every day, but we have experience and success in invalidating documents and directing the assets to the appropriate heirs and beneficiaries. Call us and we can determine if we can help.
