What Happens If Someone Contests A Will?

An interested party – or, a beneficiary, legal heir or creditor – can contest a will for up to three months from the date that the probate court has admitted it. To begin, you file a petition with the district court to which the will was submitted. Then, the parties involved in the dispute may sit down with their probate dispute attorneys in an attempt to negotiate a resolution privately. If they do not reach a compromise, then the dispute will proceed to court before a judge. The judge will either grant the will contest or deny it.
