What Is Probate Litigation?

Probate litigation pertains to legal conflicts that arise while managing the assets of a deceased individual’s estate. These conflicts are commonly triggered when there is a challenge to a will or other estate planning document.

Probate litigation arises when disagreements or conflicts occur during the asset settlement process. Some common scenarios are:

  • Will contests: Disputes regarding the validity of a will
  • Interpretation disputes: Conflicts over the meaning or intention behind certain estate documents
  • Fiduciary litigation: Legal issues involving the actions of executors, administrators or trustees

Not all disagreements during probate lead to litigation.
