A: Anybody can contest a will for any reason. Whether or not they will succeed is a completely different question. For an answer to that question as it pertains to your particular circumstances, you should schedule a personal consultation with an attorney who specializes in will contests. I think you will find that it is an uphill battle, but one that is sometimes won.
