Like any other lawsuit, Probate Litigation can be drawn out, contentious,
and expensive. However, one of the benefits of Probate Litigation is that
it tends to involve only a limited number of issues.
Probate Litigation can only be undertaken within the context of a Probate
case. This means that the parties are either litigating about the distribution
of the Probate estate, or the appointment of a Guardian and/or Conservator.
However, even within this limited set of issues, there is a great deal
of law to consider.
The other important dynamic to keep in mind for Probate Litigation is that
of family. Most probate cases involve other family members. Like divorce,
this can create strain that goes far beyond the actual litigation.
Whether you are the petitioner or respondent in a probate case (similar
to a plaintiff or defendant in a civil case), keep in mind that the dynamics
are going to be different than a traditional court case. These dynamics
are best navigated by an experienced Attorney.
