A pre-recorded streaming AUDIO replay of the February 2014 telephone seminar, Capacity Issues in Executing Wills and Trusts.
In-depth legal analysis of how common law defines our abilities to enter into testamentary and similar documents, plus a look at the effect of various uniform laws on the execution of trusts and powers of attorney.
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 listener 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. A comprehensive primer on capacity issues in executing wills and trusts, this seminar will focus on:
- 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
