Untangling The Complications Of Probate

If a person dies without a valid estate plan, that person’s estate enters probate, where his or her assets and property are distributed according to Pennsylvania intestate laws to blood relatives of the deceased person such as spouses, children, grandchildren, parents, siblings, grandparents and adopted children.

Although Pennsylvania’s probate process is relatively simple, when disputes arise, it can quickly become very complicated. When such difficulties occur, it is important to consult with experienced probate attorneys who have an in-depth understanding of the probate process and can help seek a fair and favorable resolution in probate court.

Resolving Disputes In Contested Wills

Even in situations where a will is in place, things do not always go smoothly when administering an estate. Family disagreements over the interpretation of a will caveat, for example, can become heated, and many people need a lawyer’s help to resolve matters.

At Shay, Santee, Kelhart & Deschler LLC, we can help you and your family resolve disputes related to contesting a will. These disputes may be related to undue influence, lack of testamentary capacity or misuse of interests in property.
