What is Probate Litigation?

When a deceased person's Last Will and Testament is offered for probate, there are many requirements placed upon the probate process by Florida law. Creditors and heirs are all accorded various rights, privileges and limitations that must be strictly followed. The will itself is available for review, and not everyone involved may be satisfied of the result when the provisions of the will are read in conjunction with the legal mandates.

Probate litigation often involves a will contest. In Florida, probate litigation is one of the most hotly-contested areas of the law, used by surviving family members to correct an array of injustices.
