Helping Heirs Resolve Property Rights When Wills Are Improperly Executed
California law imposes procedural requirements upon wills to ensure their validity. Certain survivors can challenge incorrectly signed, witnessed, or otherwise executed wills in the probate court upon the death of the person who attempted to make the will. Some procedural defects will invalidate a will altogether. Others will merely invalidate certain provisions, or codicils, added to the initial will.
