Contesting A Will In The Greater New Orleans Area

As your family mourns the loss of a loved one, long-buried disagreements or mistrust of relatives may rise to the surface. Disputes can arise between a surviving spouse and children from the deceased's prior marriage, between feuding siblings and between heirs who do not know each other well enough to trust that each will do what is right.

These issues may lead to will contests. Lawsuits contesting the provisions of a will may include a variety of allegations such as:

  • Improper division of property co-owned by the deceased and another person
  • Undue influence over the person who drafted the will or trust
  • Forgery of estate documents
  • Fraud by an heir or representative of the estate
  • Inaccurate accounting or valuing of the estate assets
  • Improper use or usufruct of succession property

When you are contesting a will, seeking to enforce the provisions of a will pursuing beneficiary rights or facing litigation regarding an estate, seek the assistance of an experienced Louisiana estate and succession attorney.
