Philadelphia Will Contest Attorney; Will Contests Are What We Do!

Posted on Tue Jul 26, 2016, on Will Contests and Will Challenges

How important is it to choose a Philadelphia Will Contest Attorney whose only focus is estate litigation? Naturally; never trust a complex will contest to a part-time practitioner. That is to say, such cases require specific experience in a particular court. In other words, a “Philadelphia Will Contest Attorney” cannot exist without years of experience. Indeed, contesting wills in the Orphans’ Court is learned over time. As an illustration, with over 20 years of experience, even someone like myself learns more each day.

Is There a Bucks County Will Contest Statute of Limitations?

Posted on Wed Feb 3, 2016, on Will Contests and Will Challenges

From our “Ask a Question” mailbag: Is there a statute of limitations period to challenge a will in Bucks County?

Yes. You have one year from the filing of the will to appeal the filing of a will and to contest the validity through a will contest or will challenge. Filing sooner rather than later is usually the best, as the Executor might be selling or distributing assets, which may be difficult or impossible to recover. A call to the Register of Wills should provide you with the date the will was filed. Depending on your specific timeline, and whether the one year statute of limitations has already passed, your options may vary or be non-existent.

Will contests are heard by the judges in the Montgomery County Orphans’ Court. The Montgomery County Orphans’ Court is located in Norristown. In many cases, will contest challenges settle before a trial. If the case settles, the parties could agree to terms in a matter of weeks, months or it could be on the courthouse steps minutes before trial.

What if I think my brother used undue influence to change my father’s will?

Posted on Thu Oct 15, 2015, on Will Contests and Will Challenges

From our “Ask a Question” mailbag: My brother used undue influence on my father — who suffered from Alzheimer’s — to change his will. I have filed a will contest in Camden County. My brother’s attorney is not doing any work, as he says the burden is on me. Is he correct?

When you are the challenger in a will contest the initial burden of proof is on you to show that the will was created under undue influence. An experienced will contest lawyer can explain this burden to you, as it is a bit too complex for a blog post.
