Probate Litigation: The Basics
In Florida, an ‘estate’ is made up of all of a person’s assets and liabilities. During probate, a decedent’s property must be identified, assessed, appraised, and eventually transferred to the appropriate parties. While there are certainly estate planning strategies that can be used to minimize one’s exposure to probate, you may still need to go through the process.
Probate litigation covers the full range of contested issues that could arise out of a probate proceeding. This could include everything from disputes over the implications of terms within a will or disputes over the validity of a will to allegations of breach of fiduciary duty or improper accountings.
