Houston residents may face a time in life when they are dealing with probate issues that they never imagined would be a problem. For some, they may unexpectedly be a named beneficiary in a will or trust. For others, they may find that they expected to be the recipient of the assets in an estate, only to find that the estate plan that they knew about had been altered. There are many different reasons that a legal dispute might arise when an estate plan becomes effective, and they could all lead to probate litigation.
The main problem that Houston residents find when they are involved in probate litigation is that they don’t know much about the process. After all, most people will go their entire lives without being involved with the court system, either civilly or criminally. So, many people will need to learn more than they ever wanted to know when they get involved in probate litigation.
At our law firm, we work with Houston residents who find themselves in this type of position. Some people will have a problem in which they will need to challenge a will. Others might be involved in asset disputes, where ownership wasn’t made as clear as it should have been in the estate plan. Some Houston residents may want to challenge the guardianship plans in an estate plan. If there is any question about a will being a valid will, probate issues could arise.
It is important to receive information about these issues from a trusted source. For more information about how our law firm might be able to help with your probate issues, please visit our probate webpage.
