Most Harrisburg residents see probate litigation as something to be avoided. However, even the best laid out estates -- even those with trust planning components designed to render probate unnecessary -- are not always successful at eliminating the need for probate. If, for example, the details of a trust are contested, then probate might be necessary even when a trust is involved.
Even though probate litigation has a bad reputation, though, the courts will always strive to ensure that all potential heirs, beneficiaries, creditors and the estate itself are treated fairly and appropriately under the law -- and this is something one can rely on. You can also rely on the fact that even though probate proceedings can take a long time, they eventually will come to an end.
