What is a No Contest Provision in a Will or Trust?

How to prevent beneficiaries or heirs from contesting a Will or Trust.

In order to address the possibility of any person – whether related to you or not – attempting to oppose the provisions or probate of your Will, we include a No Contest Provision. This means that if any of your beneficiaries or their heirs choose to contest your Will or Trust and lose, they are no longer entitled to any portion of your estate and will receive just $10.00.

We consider this provision to be non-negotiable and we require it to be in every Last Will and Testament we prepare.
