Many times, certain provisions, or all, of a last will and testament may be contested by one or more parties. In such cases, the matter may be resolved through probate litigation. There are various grounds on which a will in Georgia can be contested. It is important to seek clarification on the laws and regulations that govern such matters before proceeding to court.
Typically, a probate court identifies the assets of a deceased estate owner. The court will also make decisions regarding incidental expenses, payment of taxes and property division. Some of the most common reasons for contesting a will include claims that beneficiaries have not properly carried out their fiduciary duties, allegations of undue influence and requests for creditor information details to be disclosed.
