A Michigan probate attorney, Andrew W. Mayoras, has posted some information on his blog about a man who forged his girlfriend’s will after she was killed.  The will was contested and eventually declared to be  a forgery.  The man was ordered to pay the girlfriend’s family $340,000.00.  He was also charged with a crime and sent to jail.

The moral of this story is that if you forge a will, you don’t just lose the estate, you may also lose your estate as well as your freedom!
