Description Waiver Of Election To Take Against Will Indiana

An elective share is a term used relating to inheritance, which describes a proportion of an estate which the surviving spouse of the deceased may claim in place of what they were left in the decedent's will. It has also been called a widow's share, statutory share, election against the will, or forced share.

The election rights of a spouse are governed by state laws, which vary by state. Under such laws, the surviving spouse has historically had the option of either: 1. Accepting what was provided to him or her pursuant to the decedents will; or 2. Electing to take a fixed portion of the decedents probate estate property.

The right of election of a surviving spouse may be waived, wholly or partially, by a written agreement, or by a waiver signed by the surviving spouse. A valid waiver by a surviving spouse of a right of election against a will must meet three requirements: 1. It must be in the form of a written contract or agreement; 2. It must be signed by the party waiving the right; and 3. There must have been fair disclosure.
