What Is Probate Litigation?
Probate is the process of administering the estate of a person who has passed on, in accordance with that person’s last will and testament. Probate generally involves organizing assets and property, paying creditors and taxes, and distributing remaining assets in accordance with a will. Probate litigation involves the legal challenging of a will, its provisions, or the appointment of a personal representative to an estate. Probate litigation may arise in many different scenarios, as long as there is a dispute regarding a will or any aspect of the probate process.
