Customer Question
If my late husband...

If my late husband gave me the house on a will 6 years ago, and since then I had prepared a new will on my name, can any other party contest the old will to take my property?

Lawyer's Assistant: Since estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Rhode Island

Lawyer's Assistant: What documents or supporting evidence do you have?

What type of document are you refering

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I have the documentation of the old will and the new will

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
