Estates & Trusts Newsletter: February 2014
In this issue:
"Wills may be attacked on various grounds, including an attack as to the validity of the will itself. Where the Court is not satisfied the deceased testator or testatrix ‘knew and approved the contents’ of the will, additional evidence must be filed to prove the will reflects the deceased’s intentions, before Probate will be granted. In this article Christine discusses this requirement, including where there is a presumption of knowledge and approval, and ‘suspicious circumstances’ giving rise to the Court’s vigilance and need for additional evidence before Probate will be granted."
