Lombard Attorneys for Disputed Documents

The period after the death of a loved one is almost always difficult. Contentiousness over the deceased person's assets and property can make the situation almost unbearable. The compassionate team at A. Traub & Associates fully understands the sensitive nature of estate administration and are ready to help you and your family navigate whatever challenges lie ahead. We also realize that, in some cases, disputing an estate planning document may be necessary, and are prepared to handle such cases with care and professional discretion.

Challenging an Estate Planning Document in Illinois

While there are many elements of an estate plan that can be disputed, a document is usually challenged on the basis of the deceased person's decision-making capacity at the time the document was created. If you believe that your loved one was not of sound mind or was inappropriately influenced during when drafting a will, trust, or any other estate planning instrument, we can help you rectify the situation.

Problems also tend to arise when individuals use do-it-yourself estate planning forms and kits without the counsel of a qualified estate planning attorney. This often leads to improper and unenforceable documents that will not withstand a dispute during probate or in any other venue. When inheritance rights are threatened, and a decedent's wishes are not being carried out, the attorneys at A. Traub & Associates can help beneficiaries seek remedy through will contests under the law.
