Resolving a Probate Dispute

Work with an Irvine Probate Lawyer Who Truly Cares

Probate can be complicated and emotionally charged, which is why it is not uncommon for disputes to arise during the process. Sometimes a family member may not have received the outcome they had expected, causing them to contest the will. This is why it is important to ensure your will or trust is formed properly and effectively. In doing so, you can avoid potential disputes amongst surviving loved ones, protect your family's assets, maximize benefits, and resolve tax liabilities.

Reasons Why a Will May Be Contested

A will may be contested for a number of reasons. Regardless of what your specific situation entails, the team possesses the skills and resources to help you reach a favorable outcome.

Some of the most common reasons as to why a will may be contested are:

  • There are different opinions as to who should have been appointed guardian or conservator
  • A proper inventory of the property was not provided to one or more of the beneficiaries
  • One or more of the beneficiaries has done a poor job of fulfilling their duties
  • It is believed that the will was written while the decedent was under undue influence

Customized Solutions for Probate Disputes

Probate is a lengthy process that can take anywhere from a few months to a year. When parties are unable to agree upon the terms of probate and a dispute occurs, the process can take significantly longer to complete.
