Common grounds for disputing a will

Because the testator, or the person who authors a will, is no longer around to voice his or her thoughts or explain his or her decisions regarding who is given what, situations may arise that lead you to question a will and its contents. You cannot, however, contest a will simply because you are displeased with the way assets are allocated, but there are a number of valid grounds you may be able to use to do so. For example, you may be able to dispute a will in the following circumstances.

Fight over estate may be at an end


Court battles over a frozen food magnate's estate that spanned from Minnesota to Florida over a period of 5 years and cost millions of dollars may be at an end. Heirs and beneficiaries fighting over Jeno and Lois Paulucci's estate may have reached a potential settlement that could end this litigation.

How can you gain guardianship of an elderly person?


Sometimes things happen that are beyond our control. Individuals who have a loved one who is no longer able to take care of themselves may feel that things are out of their control. If this occurs, Minnesota families may need to take legal action in the form of probate litigation to become a guardian of their elderly loved one, which could give them back their sense of control.
