Probate Litigation Lawyer in Danbury

Representation for Complex Probate Matters in Stamford & Fairfield County

After a person has passed away, their debts are paid and their assets are distributed and handled through a legal process known as probate. The probate process will occur whether or not there is a will involved, although a will can help make the process go more smoothly. Although litigation is not required in the probate process, it often becomes necessary when complicated matters arise. At The Terbrusch Law Firm, we are well-versed at handling all aspects of the probate process, including probate litigation.

Understanding the Types of Probate Litigation

Probate litigation can occur in a number of different ways, depending on the circumstances of the probate process. There is a wide range of requirements which the probate process must follow and all creditors and heirs have specific limitations and rights that have to be followed. If just one step is missed or anything is handled improperly, litigation may become necessary. Probate litigation also arises in many cases over alleged abuse of power by the personal representative of the estate.

Probate litigation may involve any of the following:

  • Will contests to determine the validity of the will
  • Will construction to determine proper distribution of assets
  • Actions to remove the named personal representative
  • Lawsuits for surcharge reimbursements for any losses
  • Improper signing of the will
  • Determination of heirs
  • Elective share litigation
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Accounting issues
  • Lack of mental capacity, duress, or undue influence

Handling Complex Will Contests

A will contest is one of the most common forms of probate litigation, which involves challenging the last will and testament admitted to probate. This is most often done when one of the heirs believes that the deceased individual lacked the mental capacity to create valid estate planning documents. In order to prove a successful will contest, you will need to have sufficient evidence backing your claim.

The probate process is complex with many different steps that can be confusing, especially if the named personal representative has never been involved in probate before. Our Danbury probate litigation attorney at The Terbrusch Law Firm is here for you.
