Probate Litigation Lawyer in Brentwood

Protecting Your Rights & Assets during Probate

Probate is a process of validating a will during estate administration. If a person passes away without an estate administrator, one is typically appointed during this process. If a person passes away with a will, their executor is named by the decedent. When a person dies without a will in place, the family or the court appoints a representative. This can be a family member, a trust company, a bank, or any individual chosen.

At Carter Law, PLLC, we can help you if your loved one's estate is going through probate and their will is being contested. Issues during probate can get contentious, so you will want a skilled Brentwood probate litigation attorney on your side.

What Is Probate Litigation?

Probate litigation is the process of contesting a will during the probate process. Although every measure is taken to avoid litigation, it is not uncommon for beneficiaries of an estate to be involved in probate litigation, especially if the estate is large or complex. This is especially common when an estate plan is outdated, such as situations involving wills drafted several years prior. When estate plans are not reviewed and kept current, the final will may not reflect circumstances that have changed over time, such as marriages, deaths, or financial changes.

Probate litigation may be necessary if:

  • There is not a full accounting of the estate
  • A beneficiary is making a claim of undue influence
  • There is a dispute regarding the personal representative
  • There are disputes regarding asset distribution
  • The family members are not given most of the assets
  • The will was not properly signed
