The idea of the probate process is to help family members pass on estates, property, and financial assets to heirs and assist in providing a necessary means to help ensure that the rightful individuals are able to obtain their inheritance with little to no fuss. While this idea may seem simple, it is often plagued by complications with the court systems, disgruntled family members, or the fact that the benefactor may not have been in the right mind to create a will, or was coerced into doing so. This is where an experienced, aggressive Long Island probate litigation attorney can help.

Probate litigation is the process of contesting or fighting an area of a will or estate that you see as unfit. There can be multiple petitions, lawsuits, evidence, and paperwork involved, and it is always important that you work with a contested estates attorney before undertaking any legal action.
There are numerous reasons an estate may be contested, including:
- The will was not properly signed
- The individual that created the will or signed the will was not of the right state of mind
- The individual signing the will was coerced or tricked into signing
- The individual was wrongfully influenced or threatened to change the will prior to signing
- There are questions regarding the legitimacy of the will
With each case, there are specific assets, evidence, and witnesses that may be called into question, and having the right Long Island contested estates lawyer on your side can make a significant difference in the overall outcome of your case.
