What is Probate and What Are Probate Disputes?
Probate is the process in which the court will distribute the assets to the listed beneficiaries. Oftentimes, this can lead to probate disputes.
Probate disputes can arise due to:
- Contests of guardianship of any minor children
- Violation of fiduciary duty by the executor or administrator
- Claims that the will or trust was formed when the deceased was not in the right state of mind
Do All Estates Need to be Probated?
Not all estates need to go through probate. An estate that is in a living trust will not need to go through probate because the trust transfers the title to the beneficiary automatically. If all of the assets in an estate have beneficiaries, then probate is not necessary because the assets may be payable or transferable upon death.
