Will & Probate Litigation

Florida Will & Probate Litigation

Boca Raton Civil Litigation Attorney

Probate is the process of paying a deceased individual's debts and distributing their assets. This is profoundly affected by whether or not the deceased left a will. If disputes arise over the legitimacy of a will in the state of Florida, members of the deceased individual's family might contest the will, temporarily halting the probate process.

Two common grounds for will contest are lack of mental capacity and undue influence - meaning the will's author was coerced into distributing his / her estate a certain way. If the deceased did not leave a will, other issues might arise such as disputes over the identity of the court-appointed personal trust representative, who the heirs of a property should be, and how much each heir should receive.

It is wise to retain a proven Boca Raton civil litigation attorney who can protect your interests. The probate process is often long, arduous, and emotionally draining. In addition to the duties of meeting with your family members and working with the creditors of the deceased to pay back their loans, you may have questions about such issues as the tax implications of the estate, your fiduciary duties, and the rights of a surviving spouse of the deceased.

An experienced and knowledgeable probate litigation attorney can help you understand these issues, advise you as to your rights, stand beside you in court if necessary, finish necessary paperwork on your behalf, and stand by your side throughout the probate process to answer your questions and keep an eye on your interests.
