A no contest clause traditionally consists of specific language included in a California will or trust that attempts to prevent any legal dispute against the will after the testator has deceased. A no contest clause, for the most part, does help to discourage legal disputes over a will, except in cases for which the contesting party can offer significant proof of forgery, duress, or problems with validity of the instrument. For most no contest clauses, the language specifically states that any beneficiary of the will stands to be disinherited should he or she decide to pursue unjustifiable litigation in dispute over some aspect of the provisions of the will.
