Know your options in a contested estate matter

With probate and estate administration, Pennsylvania residents may sometimes get involved in a will contest. They don't know quite what to expect. The average person has limited exposure to our legal system, but even those who know a bit about the process can be left to wonder what their options are when an estate matter is contested.

This is especially true for Pennsylvania residents who are appointed as executors of an estate. These individuals have been placed in a position of trust by the decedent and must carry out their duties in line with the wishes expressed in the decedent's will. Unfortunately, there will sometimes be other individuals who do not agree with the terms of the will or who believe that the terms were the result of undue influence by another party. That is when a will contest can occur.

Anyone who finds themselves facing a contested estate matter will want to be sure to get the best and most up-to-date information about their legal options. There are times when these types of issues can be concluded with a settlement agreement, but there are other times when it will be necessary to present the case in court.

The death of a loved one is hard enough without worrying about legal challenges. At our law firm, we understand that those who are facing probate and estate administration situations are also grieving. We do our best to help our clients avoid will contests by proper planning or to work out contested estate matters if they arise. For more information, please visit our law firm's website.
