Contentious probate refers to any dispute or disagreement whatsoever regarding the distribution (aka administration) of the estate of a deceased individual. Disagreements often occur regarding the value of the assets, their allocation, the interpretation of the deceased party’s will, or the actions taken by executors.
Even when a person leaves behind a relatively clear and complete disclosure of how the assets should be distributed, disagreements and disputes can still occur. Contentious probate can be a complex and time-consuming matter, which is why we strongly recommend seeking expert legal support at the earliest possible stage.
