How do you prove a Will is fraudulent?
As with undue influence, the burden of proof is with the person contesting it, which means you have to prove it was made fraudulently. The reason for this is simply that if the rules have been followed and a will is signed, dated and witnessed, this is known as a "presumption of due execution", which means unless there is strong evidence to the contrary, the presumption is that the Will is valid. This means to prove otherwise, you may need expert evidence, for example, from a Calligrapher (a hand-writing expert), to show a signature is a fake. The Will witnesses may need to be interviewed to testify to the Will not being signed in front of both of them. It is not an easy route to take, but it is one that can be successful with the right legal team on your side.
