This info-graphic entitled The Importance of Probate Litigationprovides us an overview of filing probate litigation. Probate litigation may regard contesting or defending the credibility of a decedent’s will or trust or a beneficiary designation. Likewise, it may pertain to challenging or defending the appointment and actions of a personal representative, trustee, or other fiduciary operating on behalf of an estate. Probate litigation may also be obligatory in situations where someone is still living – peculiarly if there are disagreements to be settled over guardianship and conservator-ship issues, high directives, powers of attorney, or any other questions stemming from an adult’s inability to form or pass along decisions for themselves.
