Anyone can contest a Will.  Usually the basis of a hcallenge is undue influence, that someone influenced the person to write the will a specific way, or lack of testamentary capacity, meaning the person did not have the capacity to understand the Will.  A Will challenge is brought in the County in which the decedent lived when they passed away.
