What is a Disputed Estate?
Estate litigation often results when the deceased did not properly set up an estate plan, or the estate plan was not updated frequently. Estate Litigation is often about:
- a person bringing a ‘family provision claim’ against the estate because no adequate provision was made for that person by the deceased.
- parties disagreeing over the interpretation of clauses in the will.
- the will being challenged on the basis of the deceased’s lack of capacity.
- which will is the correct one (if the deceased left more than one will or multiple informal wills)
