Probate is the court process by which a last will and testament (if there is a will) is determined to be valid, and the court approves the appointment of the person or institution named in the will to administer the estate (the Executor). If there is not a will, the probate court will move forward, by application of an interested party, to appoint an administrator who will distribute the estate of the diseased. As such, a probate lawyer helps ensure these processes are carried out smoothly and correctly.
We Help Victims of Inheritance Theft
Sometimes families cannot agree on the proper interpretation of the will provisions. When these disagreements arise, they can often lead to an unwillingness to resolve the dispute without a court’s intervention. Unfortunately, the mishandling of someone’s assets is not easily recognized. It may be months or years before you or another beneficiary realizes that your inheritance was not distributed.
Our law firm can help you if you suspect foul play or a mistake has occurred regarding your inheritance. The provisions of a will and trust must be followed. We can assist you in recovering assets and possessions that rightfully and legally belong to you.
How Does Someone Become a Victim of Inheritance Theft?
Someone can become a victim of inheritance theft if they are:
- Subject to the influence of another person who may cause them to act against their own wishes.
- Mentally or physically incapacitated.
- Elderly and under the care of a family member who is estranged from the immediate family.
- Estranged from family members, especially if one child is the executor of a will and the other siblings are beneficiaries.
- Recently married or divorced.
- Deceased without any immediate family members to inherit the estate.
- Careless about who they trust to handle their estate.
