In Illinois, a person adversely affected by the will of a deceased person may contest the validity of that will.
Any claim contesting a will must be filed within 6 months after the court enters an order which admits the will to probate.
Unless you are present at the proceedings in which the will is probated, you can file a challenge to the will only if you are an interested person. An interested person is usually someone who is entitled to receive under the will, but could also be someone who has a statutory right to part of the estate, such as a spouse, or someone who would be entitled to property under the laws of intestacy if the will were invalidated.
Simply being related to the decedent does not necessarily make you an interested party to the estate. You can't simply challenge a will because you don't like what it says.
Wills can also be invalidated for fraud, forgery, and ignorance of the contents of the will.
Instead, you must raise one of several recognized reasons for invalidating all or part of a will.
Generally these involve the testator's mental state at the time of making the will, the failure to follow the appropriate formalities in executing the will or the fraudulent or undue influence of a third party on the contents of the will.
Nevertheless, there was always a great deal of mystery about these leaders, and no certain fact can invalidate the singular arrogance of this reply made later on by a man accused before the Court of Peers:—.
Yet, if the survival of a Divine Spirit did not invalidate the death of Christ, then neither does the survival of a human spirit invalidate the death of a man in that incomplete death which prevails under the economy of redemption until the second death takes place.
The courts strictly enforce the requirement of standing.
