The Role of a Probate Court

Many testators, or writers of an estate plan, may write their testaments as a way to avoid court interruption. However, when needed, probate courts can provide legal authority to settle a variety of disputes that can interrupt the execution of a will or trust. These courts handle the following problems that can affect the execution of a will or trust:

  • Division of property accordingly when no valid will or trust is present
  • Settlement of challenges to a testament
  • Determination of the validity of a will or trust
  • Prevention of executors of a testament from abusing their powers
  • Enforcement a will or trust so long as it is valid

If a family has a problem with a testament, they may take their case before a probate court to resolve whatever issues there may be.
