A will contest can arise when the will itself is called into question. If someone used undue influence to shape the will in their favor, the provisions of the will may not be followed. If the person who made the will lacked the capacity to make those important decisions, the will may not be followed. For a will to be upheld, it should reflect the actual intent of the deceased. When that intent is frustrated, either through fraud, or incapacity, the will should not control the final distribution of assets.
Probate litigation also includes situations where the probate process is tainted with fraud or unacceptable conduct. A breach of fiduciary duty by an executor or an administrator can lead to waste and a misallocation of assets. In some cases, self-dealing and fraud can drain an estate and cheat the rightful devisees or heirs out of what is due to them. In these cases, you need an aggressive and tenacious probate litigation lawyer to fight for you. Don’t let unscrupulous people take what does not belong to them through the probate system.
