What Are the Most Common Reasons for a Florida Probate Lawsuit?

Hi, I’m Reed Bloodworth, the managing partner
of Bloodworth Law with offices in Orlando, Florida and Winter Haven, Florida. We are located in Central Florida, but our
team travels across the state to handle probate lawsuits and disputes. Let’s take a look at the most common reasons
that people decide to file a probate lawsuit in Florida. There are many causes for arguments to become
emotional and litigious among siblings, spouses, ex-spouses, stepfamilies, relatives, beneficiaries
over a will. It often is based in a belief that there was
something illegal or improper taking place. Or, that someone is left out of an estate. This may occur at any point in the process
when a will was executed, or after the death of a loved one. These types of arguments include items such
as: • Powers of Attorney;
• Homes, land, and property; • Insurance proceeds;
• Creation of a new Will; • Investments;
• Transfer of property before a death; • Post-divorce will revocation;
• Disputes with a personal representative; • Guardianship issues;
• Creditor claims; • Pay on death designation on accounts;
• Fraud; • Marital settlement agreements;
• Illness, Dementia or Alzheimer’s issues; • Validity or execution a will; and
• Distribution, management, sale, transfer and accounting of estate property. The arguments that can occur before and after
a death may start with questions and end with yelling and accusations. Emotions can cause things get out of hand,
so before that happens or whenever you question a situation, hire an attorney to help resolve
the differences. Again, I’m Florida attorney Reed Bloodworth,
managing partner of Bloodworth Law. Give me a call. Let’s talk about how we can help you or
your family.
