When a person dies, there may be grounds to challenge actions taken by the decedent prior to death. These transactions can include the making of a will, the making of a gift, the making of a deed, and the making of a contract, such as a nuptial agreement. There are various grounds to challenge transactions, such as fraud and deception, coercion and duress, incompetence, overreaching, and undue influence. Other grounds to challenge transactions are based on the required formalities for executing the document: Whether a will was executed with the formalities required for a will; whether a deed was executed with the required formalities; and whether a nuptial agreement was executed in accordance with the formalities required for such an agreement.
