Insane delusion, sometimes called “monomania,” occurs when a testator has a particular belief that has no basis in reality and subsequently creates or changes his or her will based on that insane delusion. For example, a testator could believe that one of his two grandchildren has died, so he writes the first grandchild out of his will and leaves all of his inheritance to the second grandchild. In reality, he interacts with both of his grandchildren on a daily basis.
Insane Delusion May Invalidate A Will
Insane delusion is a very specific type of mental incapacity that does not necessarily affect all aspects of a person’s competency. In Florida, a will can be declared void based on a finding that the decedent suffered from insane delusion at the time of the will’s execution.
