Will Contests & Probate Court Litigation
In a legal sense, the terms "contested" and "litigation"
are often used interchangeably. Both refer to situations that may require
court action in order to resolve a dispute. While not all contested matters
involve animosity between parties, others certainly do. If you are involved
in a dispute over a will, a creditor's claim, or another probate matter,

Estate Litigation Defined
If a contested matter surfaces after a person's death, then any necessary
court proceeding will generally be filed with the court that has
probate jurisdiction. Estate or probate litigation is a broad term that includes
a variety of contested situations, including but not limited to:
- Will Contests
- Guardianship Contests
- Breach of Fiduciary Duty Actions
- Second or Subsequent Marriage Situations
Unfortunately, there are a number of factors that can lead to estate litigation.
Such examples include the creation of a nonstandard
estate plan, second marriages, the failure to appoint the right fiduciary, ill-conceived
or faulty estate planning, and the failure to update beneficiaries.
will contest, which is a formal objection raised against the validity of a
will, claims that the will does not reflect the actual intent of the testator.
Wills contests usually assert that the testator lacked testamentary capacity,
was subject to undue influence, fraud, or duress.
