Thank you for using Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed Florida lawyer.You would need a Florida probate lawyer to file a petition contesting the will in such a case. There are numerous grounds upon which a will can be disputed. In this case, it sounds like a lawyer may wish to argue lack of capacity and/or duress.
The time for contesting a will in Florida is short, typically 90 days after the Notice of Administration has been provided by the Personal Representative, or 20 days in the event that Formal Notice of the probate proceeding is received before the will has been admitted to probate. Therefore, you must not hesitate to act, or you may find yourself barred from bringing suit.You may wish to call the Florida Bar Association Lawyer Referral Service at 1***-***-**** for help in locating a lawyer in your area who can be of assistance.
