Will Contests

Will Contests in Michigan

When someone dies and leaves behind financial assets and property, it is not unusual for family members to face disputes over the proper distribution of those assets. Even when a valid will is in place, specific assets may not be listed or the deceased person’s intent may not be absolutely clear.

If you are the executor of an estate, a trustee or a family representative facing a contested will or probate litigation related to a decedent in the Detroit metro area, turn to Galloway and Collens, PLLC, for legal counsel. Our probate attorneys offer years of experience, knowledge and skill handling complex will disputes and litigation.

What Issues Lead To Contested Wills?

Disputes can develop among even the closest family members in the difficult months that follow the death of a loved one. These disputes can arise for many reasons, including ambiguous wording in the will, a failure to leave anything to children who joined the family after the will was drafted, or the belief that the decedent was not legally capable of drafting the will. Accusations of undue influence are also common.

We understand what the stakes are and how emotional will contests can become if not handled effectively.
