Testamentary competence: Defining functional abilities

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In the area of testamentary competence, there has been little research focusing on functional legal capacities. Doctoral-level psychologists with experience in forensic psychology or aging were administered a vignette describing a woman making a will. The vignette systematically manipulated the variables: knowing whether the will transfers property; knowing important assets owned; able to name heirs and detail relationship; and able to explain a non-delusional rationale. Results provided support for the hypotheses that four tested variables answered in the affirmative positively related to a finding of testamentary competence. Additional functional capacities were identified that could be useful in future research.
