Common Problems That Lead to Florida Probate Litigation:

If you believe that a will or its execution does not fulfill the genuine intention of the deceased, you have a right to challenge the proceedings in probate court. Common grounds to contest a will or enter into probate litigation might include:

  • Questions of mental capacity - deficient mental soundness of the person making the will;
  • Claims of undue influence - coercion, duress or force during creation of the will to such a degree that the will no longer reflects the wishes of the deceased, but rather reflects the wishes and intent of the person who exercised undue influence.
  • Right to Elective Share - to ensure that a surviving spouse could not be left with nothing, Florida probate law provides for a surviving spouse to elect to receive no less than 30% of the assets of his or her spouse’s estate, regardless of the terms of the deceased spouse’s will.
  • Breach of Fiduciary Duty – when the personal representative of an estate does not act within the highest legal and ethical standards. This may result in personal financial liability in breach of fiduciary duty lawsuits.
  • Questionable changes have been made to the will;
  • Questions of forgery;
  • The meaning and construction of the will, and other questions regarding the legitimacy of the will.
