Challenges to estates becoming increasingly popular

Posted on October 26th, 2011 No Comments

Family members in mixed families are increasingly contesting wills. Traditional families are becoming harder and harder to define thus creating numerous opportunities for contested wills.

According to different law committees, estates are growing in size and worth, making the option of contested wills a reality for estranged family members. The amount that stands to be gained outweighs the amount that would be spent to obtain it in most cases.

It has become more common for children of mixed families to challenge estates. This is due to the fact that when a parent remarries, their children from their previous marriage might be removed from the will without the parent’s knowledge. This unknown removal can cause problems when dealing with a will and the amount rewarded to each family member.
