Posts tagged "Probate Litigation"

The estate process can become complex sometimes

The probate process is mystifying to some people; however, it doesn't have to be. In the simplest of terms, probate is meant to transfer the assets of the decedent to the rightful heirs. This is done based on the estate plan of the person. If the person doesn't have one, the case will follow the intestate guidelines of the state.

Probate litigation is complex but it serves an important purpose

Estate plans are a set of instructions about the handling of possessions after individuals pass away. These plans are usually followed without any issues, but there are some instances in which people who are left behind don't believe that the way things are set up are truly indicative of what the person wanted. We can let you know if you have legal grounds to contest a will or fight back against an estate plan component that you believe isn't correct.

Only certain people have a legal standing to contest a will

Challenging a will isn't something that can be done by just anyone. The law has things pertaining to a will set up so that only specific people can challenge the contents of the will. People or entities who don't have a legal interest in the will can't challenge it.

Know when you can contest a loved one's will

After a loved one dies, you are probably going to be an emotional mess. Your heightened emotional state might make you more likely to react to everything around you. If you find out that your loved one's will wasn't set up how you thought it was, your emotions might take hold of you. This is understandable, but make sure that you use this to fuel a legal response to the issue.

After your loved one passes away, you will likely dread the day when you have to start going through his or her belongings. This is often a very difficult time for family members. If your loved one had a will, this process might be a bit easier because it would include information about who get what; however, this isn't always a smooth process.
