What is a no contest clause?

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_custom_heading source=”post_title” font_container=”tag:h1|text_align:center” use_theme_fonts=”yes”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BcoQCaB9nNM”][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]A no-contest clause is where you say, if somebody contests my will or my trust, they’re not going to inherit, or they’re only going to inherit a dollar or something to that effect. It changes their inheritance. However, a no-contest clause isn’t enforceable in any document in the state of Florida, so it’s of no effect if you have it in your document, even if it’s a document that is in an out-of-state will that you bring to the of Florida. It’s not going to be enforceable here. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
