Michigan Probate Law Often Involves Wills, Claims and Contesting of Wills

Will contests in Michigan often occur if a person is unhappy with his or her designated portion of the estate. Some examples of when a Michigan probate lawyer helps contest a will if a child discovers that a parent had not updated their will to include a bequest to him or her, or the spouse of the deceased may discover that the decedent has bequeathed all of their real estate property and assets to a former spouse. Additionally, Michigan probate counsel are often called on to contest a will or determine if caretakers or other persons had improperly influenced the deceased to amend a will so that the estate is left to them instead of the deceased’s close friends or family members, the natural heirs may contest a will in Michigan by alleging that the amendment was granted by undue influence or fraud.

If the deceased owes you money, you must file a creditor’s claim with the court within the prescribed time limits.
