When someone contested a will or an estate, legal action might be necessary to resolve those issues.
Some of the most important actions one can bring are:
- When a presumptive heir is set aside (disinherited), kept out from the will, or when the hereditary reserve is damaged, legal action contesting the distributions should be taken as quickly as possible;
- When the cause of death provisions are voidable due to not meeting certain conditions, provisions must be contested for their validity through litigation;
- When the decedent makes a gift or transfer assets during his or her life and the heir fails to include in the report or refuses to include in the report, creditors to the report must bring action individually or as a group to contest distributions;
- When the heirs do not agree with distributions where all the heirs receive un-divided co-ownership of the property, each heir has the right to bring legal action to claim their distributive share;
- When estate assets are in the possession of individuals who are not heirs of the decedent, the heirs may claim the title and delivery of the property by bringing a hereditary petition.
