Ensuring your loved one’s wishes are followed
Probate is the legal process through which a will is deemed valid. It also includes the payment of the decedent’s debts and distribution of assets among the beneficiaries.

Grounds to contest a will
There are several legal reasons to challenge a will:
Improper drafting – the will was not thoroughly and properly drafted to include all estate assets as well as witness and testator signatures
Incapacity – if the testator was not mentally competent at time of drafting or revision of the will, through medical diagnosis of dementia, Alzheimer’s, or another mental condition
Coercion or influence – the testator must not have been forced to draft or change the will under undue influence, meaning force, pressure, or manipulation
There is a short window to contest a will – just 90 days. If your family member’s or close friend’s will deprives loved beneficiaries of their rightful inheritance, contact our probate law firm in Tampa to schedule a risk-free initial consultation.
