Death is inevitable and, in many cases, so is probate. In a perfect world, probate would go smoothly with no contestation. However, the world is never perfect; when someone dies without first drafting a will or trust, probate, and in some cases, probate litigation, is necessary.
To file for probate litigation, or dispute an inheritance, you must be an heir or beneficiary seeking to reclaim property you feel entitled to. King Law Firm Attorneys at Law, Inc. doesn’t take this act lightly, but is prepared to protect beneficiaries that have been harmed.
There are many reasons to litigate probate. The most common are:
- A will was signed by someone without the mental capacity to do so, or was not drafted, signed, or witnessed in accordance with State law
- Undue influence
- Breach of Fiduciary duties
- Forgery or fraud
If you are an heir or a beneficiary and wish to fight the validity of a decedent’s will or probate, please call for a consultation.
