Probate litigation is often referred to as "contesting a will". Despite a loved one's attempt to sufficiently plan their estate, litigation after their death sometimes becomes necessary. A will can be contested on various grounds. For example, a child may have been left out of a will that was drafted prior to birth or a loved one may have been unduly influenced when creating estate planning documents. After an estate is opened, the personal representative may not be performing his or her duties correctly or according to the directions of the decedent. Sometimes you need to defend someone else’s rights and wishes. It may fall upon you to make or contest one or more of such claims, and insure that the right course of action is followed. We can help you understand the questions and possible answers to such questions, and help you if you wish to take a stand.
