What is Probate Litigation?

Probate litigation often involves a formal legal challenge to some provision of an estate plan. Other times, it may be related to the legitimacy of the entire estate plan. You may be looking into litigation as the result of:

  • Wills, and Estate Plan Legality: Questions about how the estate plan was originally crafted
  • Amendments: If the will or estate plan was ever amended, was it done so legally and appropriately?
  • The legitimacy of the Personal Representative: If a guardian, conservator or Personal Representative of an estate plan was named in accordance with legally binding requirements
  • Distribution of Assets: If the will or estate plan left any room for ambiguity, inheritors may have standing to contest the will through probate litigation
  • Undue Influence: Did someone manipulate the will, power of attorney or estate plan for their own personal gain?

If probate litigation in Phoenix and Maricopa County is necessary, the lawyers at the Stewart Law Group are prepared to represent you and your best interests from start to finish of the process. In addition to our legal experience, we are also sensitive to the other challenges that may not be directly related to litigation.
