Succession Disputes and Litigation

In the course of completing a succession (also known as probate), various issues can arise regardless of whether the deceased died testate (with a Last Will and Testament) or intestate (without a Last Will and Testament). When a person dies testate some issues that can arise include whether there is a Last Will and Testament, whether the Last Will and Testament is valid, and whether the deceased had capacity to make a Last Will and Testament.

When a person dies intestate some issues that can arise include whether the deceased had a forced heir and who the heirs of the deceased are.

Regardless of whether a person dies intestate or testate, a myriad of issues can arise with managing the estate and making sure the debts of the deceased are paid.

The process can seem daunting, but Hoyt & Stanford is experienced and capable and more than ready to help you with the succession of your loved one.
