Monmouth County probate lawyer Christine Matus releases a new article (https://matuslaw.com/probate-lawyer/) explaining the role of a probate litigation lawyer. The lawyer mentions that when an individual passes away, their assets will be distributed to their heirs or beneficiaries. The legal process for this situation is called probate.

“Unfortunately, there are times when there is no will, or disputes arise in the administration of a will or trust that may require mediation or even lead to litigation. An experienced probate litigation attorney will help heirs, beneficiaries, executors, and estate trustees navigate the probate process to its best resolution possible,” says the Monmouth County probate lawyer.

The lawyer explains that probate litigation is the judicial process of challenging provisions or resolving perceived injustices, errors, or objections regarding the will or trust of a loved one. The role of a probate litigation attorney is to help their clients address concerns about the estate, the provisions of a will or trust, estate administration, and many others.

Attorney Christine Matus adds that having a probate litigation attorney may be able to help with challenging forgery and fraud when dealing with Wills. If there is evidence that the will was manipulated or misrepresented, fraud can take many different forms and can be committed by a number of different parties. These parties include the executor, the beneficiary, the administrator, etc.

In the article, the lawyer also mentions that to prove the fraud, the courts must see ample evidence and hear witness testimony. This situation can require depositions and testimony from the parties involved as well as expert witnesses. Proving fraud can be a complicated process and having a skilled probate litigation lawyer is important in this situation.

“In the State of New Jersey, the probate process happens regardless of whether a person has a will or not. If there is a valid will, assets will be distributed according to that will. If there is no valid will, the courts will dictate how the assets are distributed. The courts will distribute the required documentation and dictate the responsibilities of the administrator and the personal representative. If there are neither, the courts will appoint them,” according to the probate attorney.

Lastly, the lawyer emphasizes the importance of having an experienced probate litigation lawyer in estate planning matters. An experienced attorney can help clients understand their rights and responsibilities, as well as guide them in making the right decisions.
