Probate Litigation

There are many times in which the heirs to an estate have reason to contest a probate or initiate litigation in a probate matter.  Examples of reasons to contest a probate include:

    1. An invalid testamentary instrument was submitted to the Court;
    2. The Decedent lacked capacity to execute a testamentary instrument submitted to the Court;
    3. A testamentary instrument was revised to cut out a legal or rightful heir because of the influence of another person;
    4. Questions of paternity and lawful heirship of a purported child;
    5. Prior acts of an heir, caregiver or interested party resulted in parts of the estate being diverted prior to the Decedent’s death.
