Everyone seems to know the “buzz words” of “undue influence.” Few know what it really means. Generally, a will or a trust in Florida arrives at the courthouse steps with the presumption of validity and correctness, providing it is executed according to the law. In other words, if it is in writing, signed at the end of the document by the person who made it, has two witnesses, we presume it’s valid. A will that is procured or obtained by undue influence is invalid, providing that you can prove it in a court of law. Mere “influence” is not enough. It’s ok to ask your mom or dad for money. It’s ok to ask to receive an inheritance in a will or a trust. There’s no harm in asking, right?
