In Michigan, Probate courts are set up to handle a variety of legal disputes related to probate proceedings. At Xuereb Law Group, our attorneys specialize in Probate Litigation. We represent heirs, beneficiaries, executors, personal representatives, conservators, guardians, fiduciaries, and creditors in a wide range of probate litigation matters, including:
Will and Trust Contests
Fraudulent Deeds, Wills, and Trusts
Probate and Trust Administration
Breach of Fiduciary Duties
Protection of Beneficiary Rights
The issues and concerns that arise in the process of estate and trust administration are more complex and difficult to resolve than other types of legal issues because the person who executed the documents is no longer available to resolve any discrepancy over his or her intent. Controversies that arise during the probate process can frustrate beneficiaries and add additional hardship during a time of grief. Probate and trust litigation allows you to defend the wishes of your loved one, and at Xuereb Law Group, our attorneys can help you and your family through the probate court proceedings.
Will & Trust Contests
When someone passes away, whether that person has a will, trust, or neither, there is a possibility of probate litigation. There are several ways in which a will or trust can be contested. All of the following represent possible grounds for a probate lawsuit:
The will/trust was not executed with the proper formalities
The will/trust was executed while the decedent was under duress or under undue influence by another person
The will/trust is fraudulent
The decedent lacked the capacity to make a valid will/trust at the time the will was created
The discovery of another will/trust
Property was transferred prior to the decedent’s death
Disputes about wills and trusts can tear families apart. At Xuereb Law Group, we understand the emotional toll probate issues can have on you and your loved ones, which is why our compassionate attorneys handle these delicate issues with precision, skill, and expertise. Whatever probate issue you are facing, we will work hard to resolve your probate issue as quickly, smoothly, and economically feasible as possible. Call our law office today for a consultation.
