Family inheritance issues can be some of the most contentious and emotional legal disputes. Probate litigation often involves issues which accompany second marriages, step children, sibling rivalry and mismanagement of estate assets. Contested issues many include the validity of the decedent’s last will and testament; construing the terms of an ambiguous will; spousal share election under the elective share statute; creditor claims; breach of fiduciary duty by the personal representative; improper accounting; and recovery of estate assets.
