Did You Know?

Imagine a wealthy but elderly parent who struggled with demenita as he aged. Imagine his Last Will and Testament cut out his children and left all his estate to his caretaker. Imagine the caretaker had a close friend who was a lawyer and that the caretaken had scheduled an appointment with the lawyer and drove the parent to the lawyer’s office. And suppose the attorney kept the caretaker in the room when the will was drafted, having the caretaker summarize the parent’s assets as they drafted the will. Finally, in spite of all that, assume that parent acted wihtout any coercion, that he was mentally fit and that his Last Will and Testament did exactly what the parent truly wanted to do with his estate for years. Does the Last Will and Testament survive a court challenge from the kids? No; the judge will probably toss the will.
