Overview of Probate Litigation and Intestacy

A single individual or multiple parties can contest a will. Probate litigation often occurs due to a suspicion of an invalid instrument or trust, undue influence, mental defect, forgery or fraud, no-contest clauses, disqualification, property characterization and the administration of the estate, among many other
grounds.

In Texas intestacy refers to a decedent that died without a will in place. As a result, the state determines how the property is distributed among varying levels of heirs. In certain cases, a beneficiary may not receive their fair share or nothing at all. A lawyer can assist you in attempting to obtain a just allocation based on your relationship with the decedent.
