The Law Firm of KALIS & KLEIMAN Help Individuals Prepare for and Understand Probate
Davie, FL – The Law Firm KALIS & KLEIMAN want to help individuals prepare for and understand probate. While thinking about or dealing with end of life issues can often be scary, overwhelming and emotional; the choices one makes ahead of time can make a big difference on what their family and beneficiaries have to deal with once you are gone.
To help ensure a smoother or easier probate, it is important to have up-to-date estate plans ((http://www.kaliskleiman.com/
The validity of a will is often challenged during the probate process. Challenges are often based upon errors in execution, unwarranted influence on the deceased when the Will was created, and incompetence of the deceased when the will was created.
When a person dies with a Will, a court generally has to have an opportunity to allow others to object to the Will and to determine if the Will is valid, incase:
* There was a later Will (which, if valid, may replace the older Will); or
* The Will was made at a time the deceased was not mentally competent to make a Will, or
* The Will was the result of fraud, mistake, or "undue influence"; or
* The Will was not properly "executed" (signed); or
* The so-called Will is actually a forgery; or
* For some other reason (such as a pre-existing contract) the Will is not fully valid; or
* There are other claims against the deceased's estate that impact what the beneficiaries under the Will would receive.
Any property owned by the deceased at the time of death may be included in the estate and subject to probate. This can include bank accounts, Certificates of Deposit, investment and retirement accounts. It may also include the deceased’s real estate holdings (http://www.kaliskleiman.com/
