When someone dies, assets will be divided and transferred in accordance with their Last Will and Testament or if there is no will in accordance with Florida’s laws of intestate distribution. However, even with binding legal documents, questions and disputes still arise. Probate administration is highly complex and filled with details of which clients or beneficiaries would not be aware. Additionally, because emotions and finances often come into play, it is important to work with an experienced and objective Florida probate attorney who has mastery of the complexities of this area of law and is capable of negotiating with family members or business partners.

Florida Probate Litigation Resolves the Many Disputes That Can Arise Over a Will
In theory, a Last Will and Testament is written to prevent disputes over the division of property after a decedent’s death. Most people write wills to benefit family members, settle tax issues ahead of time, and get the maximum benefit out of all the assets. Unfortunately, even the most carefully drafted will can be disputed after a person’s death, often by well-meaning family members.
 
There are a number of reasons a will may be disputed. A family member might claim that a person was not mentally fit to sign a Last Will and Testament. They might assert that someone exercised undue influence over the decedent, causing them to reject a family member or make unequal property distributions. There may also be allegations of fraud, elder abuse, a breach of confidence by a lawyer or fiduciary, or the abuse of a power of attorney. Finally, a Last Will and Testament may not have been written, signed, and/or witnessed in accordance with Florida law.
 
Whatever the reason, if a will is being challenged, family members and beneficiaries can become enmeshed in a complex emotional and legal web which can only be resolved through court action. It is essential that they have a probate lawyer  who can guide them through this complicated area of the law. The best probate attorneys for these types of cases are not only experts in wills, trusts, and estates, but they also have significant experience as trial lawyers.
