Invalidation of a will in Belarus

A will determines the fate of the property belonging to testator. The law establishes the requirements that a will must meet. Particularly, if the requirements for the form of the will or the procedure for its execution have not been met, or if the law on the invalidity of transactions have been violated, these violation create options to challenge the will. For example, one of the grounds for invalidating a will in an inheritance dispute is the execution of a will by a person who, due to a mental disorder, has not understood the meaning of his actions.

A inheritance dispute lawyer will prepare an appropriate statement of claim, form a package of documents established by law for going to court, and represent the client's  interests in court. If, based on the results of the dispute, the will is declared invalid, then the inheritance will be distributed according to the previously valid will or in the order of priority established by law.
