Guiding you through the estate planning process

For some, it is hard to think beyond this year, let alone this month or this week. Planning for the future can be challenging because there are many what-ifs and uncertainty. While no one can be completely prepared for what is to come, there are some measures individuals in New Jersey and elsewhere can take to help protect their assets and wishes in the event of their incapacitation or death.

Who has standing to challenge a will in New Jersey?

The loss of a loved one can leave a family in New Jersey grief-stricken. The matter can be made even worse if a person believes the terms of their loved one's will should not be followed, for example, if they believe the will was executed under undue influence or when their loved one was incompetent. However, before a person can pursue estate litigation, he or she must have standing to challenge a will.

Those chosen as executors of an estate may seek legal help

Being selected to serve as the executor of a loved one's estate is certainly an honor, but it also comes with responsibilities. Moreover, many people in New Jersey aren't very familiar with the probate process. And, while probate in New Jersey is not as complicated as it is in other states, if mistakes are made they could end up being very costly.
