Sarasota Probate Litigation Lawyer

Assisting Residents of Sarasota, Florida throughout the Probate Litigation Process

Probate is a legal process during which a deceased individual’s assets are distributed – and their debts are paid. In some instances, the deceased individual may have a will, while at other times, he or she may have died intestate (i.e., without a will). Although, in some cases, there are no significant disputes during the probate process, disputes do sometimes arise. In those instances, a lawsuit may need to be filed with the court. The process that begins by filing a legal complaint is called probate litigation.

Probate litigation can be a complicated process. The knowledgeable team of probate litigation lawyers at Inverso Law Group are prepared to assist with all of your probate litigation needs. Please give us a call today to learn more about how we can assist you throughout every step of the probate litigation process.

Notice of Administration

One of the first official documents that is issued after a decedent’s death is the Notice of Administration. The purpose of this document is to notify all of the interested parties that the decedent has passed away. The document also lets interested parties know that there is a will in place and that they can only object to probate proceedings (i.e., contest the will) within a certain period of time. Otherwise, they will be time-barred from doing so in the future. The recipient of a Notice of Administration may have several legal bases to file a dispute.
