Will Caveats are a strange creature in the North Carolina Court system. They start out as an estate. The Estate gets transferred to Superior Court. Will Contests cases must be tried by a jury, not a bench trial.

It all boils down to whether the testator (Signer of the Last Will & Testament) knew what he or she was doing by making the will, and did it of his or her own free will without undue influence. Undue Influence has a whole spectrum of factors dealt with in other news articles on this website.
