The loss of a loved one can have a major effect on a person's life. Some individuals will experience grief and maybe even anger at the situation, especially if they feel their loved one was taken too soon. In the case of a protracted illness, some individuals may feel relief that their loved one's suffering is over. Still others may have an additional concern: what happens to their loved one's assets now that their loved one has died?
Although some Rockville residents have already addressed this issue and created a will, that doesn't mean that will contests will not occur. For example, heirs to an estate can challenge the definition of certain terms in their loved one's will. Other times, there may be concerns that the will was entered into under duress or that their loved one was not competent enough to create a valid will.
Challenging a will can be a difficult endeavor, particularly when one is already experiencing the gamut of emotions that come with the loss of a loved one. Probate issues can be complicated, and one may not want to try to handle them alone.
