Will Contest And Undue Influence: When Is Probate Litigation Necessary?
The goal of a will is to prevent conflict between family members. However, even the most airtight wills can become the center of a dispute. Many factors can give rise to a probate dispute, such as:
- Heirs dispute the inventory of the estate.
- Heirs dispute the disbursement of the assets.
- Heirs believe they were left out.
- The decedent owns property out of state.
- An individual had undue influence over the decedent when the will was created.
