Probate & Administration of Estates

Most probate issues are avoidable with competent estate planning. Nonetheless, even with the most careful estate planning, sometimes it is not possible to avoid probate. Wills can be challenged for a variety of reasons including:

  • The competency of the deceased when the will was signed
  • Improper execution of the will
  • Undue influence by another person
  • Inadequate consideration to a surviving spouse
