Trusted Probate Litigation Services
Dealing with the loss of a loved one can be difficult for any family. If the deceased left confusing, contradictory or no instructions regarding how to dispose of their belongings, it can create family conflict that profoundly increases your grief.
If no will was drafted by the decedent, there are specific guidelines in Texas that determine how the estate will be distributed. At times, family members disagree with these guidelines, making the process more difficult. Litigation typically becomes necessary when beneficiaries and heirs seek to challenge the validity of a loved one’s last will and testament or the intestate distribution of his or her assets.
Guidance for Your Dispute
There are a variety of reasons an individual or family will choose to contest a will in Texas. The most common include:
- If the decedent was believed to have been mentally incapable of formulating the intent as reflected in his or her will
- If a will or trust is poorly written, unclear, partially or largely incomplete, or contradictory
- If it is believed that the will is a forgery
- If several wills exist and it is unknown which is the most recent
- If it is believed that the decedent was influenced by a person who may directly or indirectly benefit from the will
- If an existing will has not been submitted to probate within four years of the decedent’s death, meaning that the will may be invalid
