What if I think that the person who made the Will was being bullied into creating/changing his or her Will?

Whilst the law does not prevent people from trying to persuade a testator from distributing their assets in a certain way under their Will, the court will intervene if a person has effectively coerced a testator into making a particular Will.  In other words, the testator’s own judgment effectively has to have been overridden by the person who has manipulated them into making a particular Will.

To determine whether there has been any improper influence requires thorough consideration of the evidence of the solicitor or Will maker who was involved in the preparation of the Will and the witness evidence of other people who were involved in the testator’s life.
