Probate is the process by which a person’s assets are distributed to creditors and heirs after their death. Sometimes during probate, conflicts arise about how the property should be distributed. For example, if there is no will, the heirs may need to be determined by Florida intestacy statutes. Or, a will may be contested by a family member who claims that there was undue influence, lack of testamentary capacity, or a mistake in the execution of the will that makes the will invalid. Other probate litigation matters include: breach of fiduciary duty claims against the trustee who administers the estate, financial elder abuse claims, and contested trusts.
If you are facing a probate litigation matter, let an experienced Florida probate attorney represent you and ensure that your best interests are protected.Real Estate
