Oral Contract to Make Will Upheld

A pre-1993 oral contract to make a will was found to have been established by the testimony of the beneficiary’s husband, brother, and nephew, and the beneficiary was found to have substantially performed her obligations under the contract when she was prevented from continuing to care for her father by her father’s own actions.  Meyers Estate, 5 Fid. Rep. 3d 107 (O.C. Montgomery 2015) (Opinion by Murphy, J.), aff’d, No. 1063 EDA 2015 (Pa. Super. 2/17/16) (non-precedential).

[See 20 Pa.C.S. § 2701 for the evidence needed to establish a contract relating to inheritance entered into after December 16, 1992.]
