What is Probate Litigation?

Generally speaking, probate litigation occurs when there is an objection to any aspect of a Last Will and Testament. Our team has years of experience handling cases involving probate law in Missouri and have worked with clients facing all sorts of situations.


We are ready to help you if your probate issue involves:

  • A will contest
  • Appraisals of given assets
  • The status of an heir
  • A breach of fiduciary duty

The details of your probate contest will determine the cause of action that requires prosecution or defense. If you are the party with an objection, your attorney can initiate a probate lawsuit to work toward a favorable resolution.


Some situations that may require probate litigation include:

  • Nonstandard estate plans
  • Multiple marriages
  • Conflicting pre-nups or post-nups, or a lack of marital agreements altogether
  • An inappropriate fiduciary or clashing co-fiduciaries
  • Bad estate planning or an estate plan that has not been updated periodically

It can be hard to avoid probate court after a family member passes away, especially if there are several factors at play or parties involved. Professional estate planning today is the most effective way to prevent complex litigation later.
