Will & Trust Contests

Our Attorneys Can Assist With All Manner of Will and Trust Disputes

The reading of a last will and testament has frequently served as a plot point in movies and television shows over the years. In many cases the beneficiaries’ inheritance is contingent upon some humorous requirement or it is an opportunity for the off-screen deceased individual to have the last word. When there is a real issue with a trust or will, however, the experience is no laughing matter.

Whether the dispute involves a question of the document’s legitimacy, a perceived omission, an issue with the death tax, or an error in drafting, a will can be contested. Even wills that are subject to probate can be contested in the state of Florida. Challenges to a trust or will can be initiated by any interested person including a spouse, children or other heirs, creditors, and other potential claimants regardless of their relationship to the decedent. Even beneficiaries from an earlier version of a will, whose interests had been reduced or eliminated by a new will, have the legal right to contest the latest version.
