Michigan Probate Litigation Attorneys

We live in a mobile society and families are often separated by great distances. Blended families have also become more common. These are two factors that may explain why probate litigation now seems more prevalent. Even when estate planning documents have clearly outlined asset transfers and distributions, legal disputes can arise in the estate administration process. Beneficiaries may challenge the validity of wills and trusts based on lack of capacity, duress, or fraud.

This is especially true in cases of international estate administration, where the interplay between the laws of different countries and tax consequences become more complex.
