No Contest Clauses

Posted by Gregory Singleton | Jun 09, 2021 | 0 Comments

A “no contest clause”, or “in terrorem clause” is a provision in a will or trust which states that if a person challenges the will, then their inheritance through the will or trust is void and they get nothing. They are not always enforceable, depending on the jurisdiction. Also, if not drafted correctly, they may not be worth the paper they are written. But including one may be enough to persuade a person to not contest the will, even if they don't feel they are being treated fairly.
