Resolving Matters Relating To Probate

Losing a family member is painful enough without having to deal with family disputes. In some cases, however, surviving relatives cannot agree on the deceased person's final wishes.

An heir may disagree on an inheritance dispute. Surviving siblings may argue with the estate administrator about the terms of a trust. Disputing a will is also common.

Settling A Conflict Over A Will

Family members or other beneficiaries may contest a will if they believe:

  1. The Will was not executed or signed properly.
  2. There is doubt about the testator's mental capacity at the time the Will was created.
  3. Concern exists that another party exerted undue influence over the creation of the Will.
  4. The challenging parties believe another party committed fraud to have certain designations introduced into the Will.
