Is the Will Contest Worth It?
If you’re going to challenge a will, object to a will, file a will challenge or a will contest, consider the money that is at stake. Both what you’re going to pay to your attorneys, your estate litigators as well as the costs that are involved because there will be costs beyond your attorney. There’ll be deposition transcripts, you may need private investigators, you may need expert testimony, you may need travel expenses. Consider those and consider also the amount of money that you’re after, the amount of money in controversy, the property that you’re fighting over, is it all worth it? Finally consider the non-financial factors, stress and the relationship you have or that you’re going to lose with the family members who are going to be involved in your estate litigation.
