Understanding Estate Litigation
Estate litigation is a formal legal process that follows the loss of a loved one. It is the process of understanding how the deceased’s estate will be divided between their family members and other parties. While the loved one may have left a will, indicating their wishes, disputes often arise about who has the right to the estate after their death. These disputes are often emotional and very personal to those involved, and having an unbiased and professional third party present can make all the difference.
The role of an estate litigation lawyer is to provide guidance and advice to beneficiaries and estate trustees on a variety of challenges, including:
- Will disputes
- Relief claims
- Capacity issues
- Will interpretation
The team at Verhaeghe Law Office has the experience and expertise to carefully investigate and research the legal details of a will and file a petition to the court. We can also help your family navigate these proceedings in the absence of a will.
Competitive Rates on Legal Assistance for an Estate Litigator
On top of being an emotionally turbulent time, losing a loved one can also be an expensive process. From paying for funeral expenses and other end-of-life costs, the average family could be out up to 10,000 dollars.
While you may be trying to save money, hiring a lawyer to deal with interpersonal estate litigation is of high value, and our team is happy to offer our quality services at competitive rates.
If you’re interested to learn just how much estate litigation will cost, we invite you to reach our experts by phone or email. We’ll be happy to provide you with pricing details before we get started working on your case.
