Desperate times and will contests

Men pulling tug of war with bag of money on it
Desperate times make desperate people do desperate things. I suspect that's why there's been an uptick in the amount of probate litigation recently. More people who think they're not getting their rightful share of the estate pie are willing to go to the mats for their inheritance. No one has exact figures, but the trend has been noticed across the country - read one report here.

What this mean is that as you plan your estate, your legal work must be done with scrupulous care,  particularly if you will be disinheriting someone. This is no time to cut corners. Consult with a qualified, experienced elder law attorney who can make sure that all is done correctly so that your wishes will be honored after you are gone.  Our estate planning attorneys can help!
