San Antonio Probate Lawyer

During the probate process, the family and heirs have an opportunity to contest the estate. They may disagree over how the will or trust was created, they may believe assets are being mismanaged or they may believe undue influence was exerted on the testator. To challenge an estate, you need a probate lawyer.

Probate Disputes and Heirship

People challenge wills and trusts when they believe there has been misappropriation of family assets or other issues such as:

  • Undue influence (last-minute will changes, non-family as late additions)
  • Addition of caregivers to wills (nursing home and home health care aides)
  • Mental incapacity of the testator
  • Improper allocation
  • Mismanagement
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Breach of trustee duty
  • Misappropriation of durable powers of attorney

We will investigate the allegations and try to find a resolution out of court. However, we can litigate the dispute if the family cannot reach an agreement.

In addition, we can assist you with determination of heirship. When a probate court needs to locate missing heirs, we can help determine if the person is legally entitled to the estate in question.
