- Lack of capacity: proving that the testator did not have the necessary mental ability to sign a will
- Undue influence: proving that another individual, usually someone in a position of trust or power (such as a caretaker), coerced, manipulated, or pressured the testator into making or changing a will against their wishes • Revocation: proving that the testator wished to revoke the will being presented as valid
- Fraud: proving that the will was created or altered by someone other than the testator against the testator’s wishes.
