Topics covered include:

  • The historical and current status of Virginia common law
  • The effect of various uniform laws on the execution of trusts and powers of attorney
  • The defense of estate planning documents executed by an aging population
Take the steps necessary to preclude litigation over capacity issues. Was the decedent incapacitated or just grumpy? Hear a discussion on how common law defines our abilities to enter into testamentary and similar documents. As longevity increases, we witness more instances of questionable documents and greater opportunities for fraud, duress, and undue influence. Will contests alleging claims of these acts are increasing.

During this review of various court cases, the viewer will develop a better awareness of warning signs and learn either how to deal with them at the time of execution of testamentary documents, or how to repair planning tainted by diminishing or diminished capacity.
