Common Probate Litigation Issues

Like any type of civil litigation, probate litigation involves emotionally charged issues that must be resolved. If efforts to resolve the issues, short of litigation, fail, it is the job of our lawyers to develop a legal strategy that objectively and optimally guides you through the probate litigation process. By keeping our firm small, we focus on developing professional yet personal relationships with our clients.

Some of the common issues that arise during probate litigation include questions about:

  • Inheritance disputes
  • Validity of a will or trust
  • Testamentary capacity and undue influence
  • Common law marriages
  • Gifting to a minor child or disabled adult child or spouse
  • Divorced family inheritance
  • Pretermitted heirs (writing a child out of a will or attempting to write a spouse out of a will)
