Can I challenge registered Will written by mentally unstable father


My father passed away recently and was mentally unstable and did not know how to read and write. Before his death, my elder brother took him to mussouri and got his Will made and registered where he willed all his property to a trust. Can we challenge the Will now? On what grounds?

Yes, the will can be challenged on grounds of being made under coercion.

You can also file an appropriate declaratory suit in the civil court.
