Losing a loved one isn’t easy, but the pain of the loss seems to be magnified for some when they learn that the will their loved one left will have to go through probate litigation because of disputes. The sad fact of the matter is that there are sometimes questions about a will’s validity. In some cases, there are family disputes that lead to those questions.
When you are facing a dispute about a loved one’s will, it is important that you understand how the process works. You have to understand the issues that might be leading to the will dispute. In some cases, the reason might be that someone thinks your loved one was coerced into drafting the terms of the will as they are stated. In other cases, they might think that the will was created when the person wasn’t legally capable of drafting a will.
No matter what the reason for questioning the validity of the will, the fact remains that you need to have a complete understanding of the case. No matter which side of the case you are on, we can help you to investigate the matter and learn your options for defending your side. We don’t want you to think that you have to sit back while your loved one’s will is questioned. Instead, you can take steps to learn about how you can handle the situation.
Even in complex cases, such as those involving considerable assets, we can help you to protect your rights as you try to get the estate handled in the way you think your loved one intended.
