Probate is the legal process by which a person’s debts are paid, and then their remaining assets are distributed accordingly after their death. Unfortunately, difficulty may arise in probate that requires the filing of a formal lawsuit, which is known as estate litigation or probate litigation. In Florida, there are many legal requirements placed upon the probate process when a deceased person’s will is offered for probate. Strict rights, privileges, and limitations must be followed as it relates to creditors and heirs. Although the will itself is available for review, there may be cases when not everyone involved is satisfied with the result. This can lead to a contested will by surviving family members and potential beneficiaries.
