Contesting a Will or Trust

Troy Estate & Probate Attorneys

A last will and testament is the most common way to make sure your assets are distributed in accordance with your wishes after you pass away. Sometimes issues will arise, catching family members in an emotional struggle over the contents of a will. While the first step is to make sure the will is properly drafted, contesting a will can sometimes be necessary.

Issues with Wills and Trusts

A person who writes a will does so to help take care of their family. With the help of an attorney, they will lay out conditions for what they think needs to happen, but these preparations may not always be correct or complete. The team at BRMM has decades of experience contesting faulty will and trusts.

Some legitimate questions that can arise surrounding wills and trusts can include:

  • Whether the mental capacity of the person writing the will was sufficient at the time the will was executed
  • Another person’s undue influence over the person executing the will
  • Revisions to the will following a new marriage that could pose disadvantages to adult children from a previous one

In all these scenarios, BRMM strives to resolve each case diplomatically. If we are unable to obtain a suitable result, we are not afraid to aggressively litigate that position and fight for our clients’ rights in court. Our probate litigation attorneys have represented heirs, beneficiaries, and personal representatives in disputes concerning the terms of contested wills.

Experience Counts

Our decades of experience analyzing and litigating contested wills according to Michigan law help us to better consider questions and present evidence about the testator’s competence. We can examine undue influence or fraud, or invoke the rights of intestate succession. We also represent parties in probate disputes relating to the construction of the will.

Our experience with contested wills not only helps protect your interests as an heir or fiduciary of the estate, but can help reach solutions faster and ease tensions between opposing family members.
