Sometimes, wills cause problems. A variety of factors can cause a will to be deemed invalid, rendering a court helpless to enforce it. Some reasons that could cause a will to be deemed invalid is if the deceased did not have the mental capacity required to make a will when they executed their will, if the deceased was improperly coerced into executing the will, or if the execution of the will did not adhere to the requirements set out by law.
