Oklahoma City Probate Litigation Attorney

Contesting a Will & Problems with Probate

When someone dies, a probate court will determine that a will is valid, it will appoint an executor or personal representative, the court will identify the assets of the deceased, determine how taxes and other incidental expenses are to be paid, and distribute the property among the legal heirs mentioned in the will.

The will is an important legal document written and signed by the deceased with the attestation of witnesses. The will specifies how the property is to be distributed among the heirs.

Probate litigation is nothing more than "contesting a will." A will can be contested for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Claims of undue influence
  • Differing opinions over guardianships and conservatorships
  • The executor or personal representative is failing in their fiduciary duties
  • The details about the creditors has not been disclosed
  • One or more beneficiaries do not receive an inventory of the property
  • Disputes over who becomes the personal representative
  • Disputes over asset or property distribution

Wills and probate are considered important because they help avoid disputes among family members, they help beneficiaries arrive at an amicable solution, they ensure that all heirs benefit, they safeguard the decedent's wealth, they maximize the benefit of the property, and they resolve debts and tax liabilities of the deceased.

It's important to remember that it's not easy to deal with probate administration or probate litigation.
