Q & A – What is undue influence?

Undue influence is a legal term that refers to a situation in which one person exerts pressure or influence on another person in a way that overpowers their free will and ability to make independent decisions. If someone makes you do something that you did not want to do through undue influence, it could be considered a form of coercion.

Examples of undue influence could include situations where someone threatens you with physical harm or other negative consequences if you do not comply with their demands, or situations where someone uses their position of authority or trust to manipulate you into doing something against your will.

It’s important to note that the legal definition of undue influence can vary depending on the jurisdiction and the specific context of the situation. If you feel like you have been subjected to undue influence, you may want to speak with a lawyer or other legal professional for guidance on your rights and options.
