The Will of the deceased should properly distribute, or dispose of, their estate. In order to avoid conflict among the beneficiaries of the estate, an experienced probate litigation attorney can help prevent issues that could be contested in probate court. If there is not a Will, the State of Texas will follow regulations that govern the distribution of the estate, even if it does not agree with the family of the deceased.
Contesting a Will can be a difficult part of the probate litigation process. The wishes of the deceased are set aside as a result of accusations of forgery, invalidity, undue influence, asset categorization, and fiduciary negligence. These issues are resolved before a judge, in probate court, and do not always guarantee a verdict in favor of the claimant.
