When disagreements or issure arise regarding the execution of a will, the attorneys at Bercik Law are here to help.
The probate process, that is the managing of a decedent’s estate, can be a complex procedure involving review of the will, the opening of the estate, collecting the assets, paying decedents’ debt and taxes, distributing the remains to beneficiaries, and closing the estate.
Oftentimes, it can be an emotionally-charged ordeal that brings out past pain and resurrects complicated relationships between loved ones.
We specialize in helping families through times of loss and conflict and have a deep knowledge of the probate mediation and litigation processes. That knowledge coupled with our wealth of experience in helping clients successfully move through probate means that our clients’ interests are well represented.
Why does probate sometimes lead to litigation?
Probate litigation is not necessary in all cases, but the emotional nature of the process lends itself to potential conflicts where legal representation may be necessary and beneficial. If there are disagreements about the executor’s status or the will’s legality, these issues may require litigation.
Further, if the language of the will is vague or if there are differences in the interpretation of the will, this could also lead to potential litigation. If there are disagreements regarding the division of assets, beneficiaries may seek probate litigation support in these instances as well.
No matter the reason for probate litigation, if you find yourself in this sort of circumstance it’s important to get clarity around the potential issues with your probate and to understand the possible legal solutions for cases like yours.
