Ocala Probate And Estate Litigation Attorney

When an individual dies, that person's debts are paid and assets distributed through a process known as probate. However, in some instances, controversies can arise during this time; there may be parties who object to the probate proceedings. Such objections against the estate can take many forms.

Objecting to Probate When A Will Is Involved

When the decedent has executed a will, parties may object on grounds such as:

  • Mistake in the execution of the will
  • Decedent's lack of mental capacity
  • Undue influence or duress

Objecting to Probate When A Decedent Leaves No Will

In other cases the decedent has died intestate — or passed without a will — which can result in controversies as well. When probate occurs without a will, parties may object on grounds including:

  • The list of presumed heirs under intestate laws
  • The elective share involving a surviving spouse
  • Any inheritance by children born outside the marriage
