Estate court battles can cause rifts between family members

When a loved one passes away, the last thing that you want to worry about are the legal ramifications of their passing. For some, the probate process is quick and simple. But there are times when disagreements between family members can cause the probate process to become much more complex and lengthy. We are here to help you through the process when litigation is needed to close out the estate.

There are many reasons why an estate might need to go through the court process. One of the most common is that a family member who was a beneficiary in a prior will or who is on the intestate succession list finds out that they have been left out of the current will. This can be a big shock for those who thought that they would receive something after a loved one's death.

Several things happen when someone brings a concern about the will before the court. One is that it triggers a process to determine what the decedent truly wanted. Another is that it can cause a rift in the family. For this reason, some individuals might bypass the entire fight just to keep the peace.

We know that you have a lot of considerations when you are faced with the possibility of a court battle over an estate. We are here to help you learn about the options that you have so that you can finalize the matter. This is a stress that you truly don't need while you are trying to work through the emotions and grief that accompany the death of a loved one.
