Nobody wants to go through a probate dispute, and yet such disagreements seem to occur all too often. Some people feel that squabbling over property and assets is callous in the wake of a lost loved one, but people do not always know when they will pass away, and sometimes wills do not truly reflect the desires and intentions of an individual. If one expects to live longer, he or she may put off changing a will until it is too late.
If you have recently lost a loved one, and you feel that the person's will is not in line with what that person may have wanted, or if the person never prepared a will, do not be afraid to take legal action. There are laws and precedents in place to govern probate and any disputes that may arise therein. In ideal circumstances, probate disputes would be resolved outside of the courtroom, but unfortunately, litigation is not always avoidable.
As with most legal proceedings, preparation is key, and if you go through a probate dispute expecting to resolve the issue out of court, you will likely be playing catch up if the dispute goes to court and the other party or parties were ready. It may seem crass, but the shrewdest decision is to prepare for litigation as quickly as possible, and that's where we come in.
