Trusted Probate Litigation Attorneys in North Carolina

When a loved one passes away, their estate may need to be settled in a court-supervised legal process called probate.

Probate transfers ownership of a deceased person’s assets to beneficiaries.

Who can contest a Will in North Carolina?

If you believe a will might not be correct or fair, you may be able to challenge it legally, but there are some rules to keep in mind.

First, not just anyone can contest a will. You must be what’s known as an “interested party.” In plain English, this means you’re someone who would have received something (an “inheritance”) if an older version of the will was used, or if there was no will at all and North Carolina’s standard rules for dividing an estate were applied.

It’s also crucial to be aware of the time limits. You have three years from the date the will goes through the probate process. If you’re past that three-year mark, it’s usually too late to bring a case.

So, if you believe a will isn’t right, but wouldn’t receive anything even under an older will or with no will at all, you likely won’t be able to contest it. It’s essential to understand your legal rights and to act promptly.
