Probate and Estate Administration Resource Links

A will contest can result in a significant delay in the distribution of a loved one's assets, and can also be expensive. The costs of a will contest are paid out of the estate, which may significantly deplete the available funds. If you are concerned that a will may be subject to a will contest, contact our firm to schedule a consultation with an experienced probate and estate administration attorney.

Probate is not always necessary, but it may take a lawyer's help to determine the best alternative course of action. As a general rule, property that passes through a will can be subject to the probate process, but property that is held in trust will avoid court intervention. When you create a trust and put property into the trust, you actually relinquish personal ownership of the property. Because you no longer own the property, it does not pass at your death, but stays in the trust, with a change in the beneficiary.
