Probate litigation involves claims of murder

After a family member's passing, discontent among surviving family is not unusual. In many cases, heirs may fight over the remaining estate, even if the deceased left a will. In particular, if one individual feels cheated, he or she may feel that probate litigation is necessary in hopes of reaching a more desirable outcome.

Can probate litigation take place even with no-contest clauses?

It is not unusual for surviving family members to feel disgruntled with the manner in which a loved one may have distributed assets in his or her will. In some cases, this dissatisfaction could lead to probate litigation as individuals attempt to obtain an outcome that they feel better suits the circumstances. Litigation could also come about in the event that Texas families suspect that a will may be invalid.

Concerns over undue influence may lead to probate litigation

The loss of a loved one can come with many factors to consider.

Family fights are often a way of life in Texas and across the country. At some point or another, a squabble will break out that may or may not have a simple resolution.

Families in Texas and elsewhere often face issues among themselves and with others. In some cases, children and parents can become estranged, and after a parent passes, issues could arise if surviving children believe that there are problems with the will or inheritances in general. Some parents may even disinherit children, but that may not prevent probate litigation.

No will, or too many wills, could lead to probate litigation

There are many issues that could lead to conflicts when working to settle the estate of a recently-deceased Texas resident. When there are complex or valuable assets involved, especially with those of successful artists, it can be difficult to work through the legal proceedings of closing the estate without the right information. Unfortunately, probate litigation may take place in hopes of coming to terms.

Unclear wording in will leads to probate litigation

When a loved one passes away, surviving family can become very protective over the assets left behind.

In fact, some issues could even lead to probate litigation.

Handwritten will leads to probate litigation

In Texas and elsewhere, obtaining an unexpected inheritance can often make anyone feel a sense of joy and excitement. However, before assets can be distributed, a will must be validated and the probate process needs to take place.

Probate litigation can involve many people and entities

Many complications can arise after a Texas resident's death. When estate plans or beneficiary designations have not been updated, the chance for conflict could increase. In many cases, probate litigation may be necessary in order to resolve these conflicts, and third parties could end up caught up in the disputes.

Estate funds could be used to address probate litigation

Being named executor of an estate can bring about mixed emotions.
