Probate litigation typically involves the challenge to the validity of a will, the meaning and construction of a will, the proper administration of a will, creditor claims, the rights of surviving spouses, and determining what assets are included with the probate estate.
Some people use trusts to provide for the distribution of their assets at death, or during life, rather than a will. The primary difference in using a trust to provide for the disposition of assets, and using a will for that purpose, is that the administration of the will through probate is supervised by a court.
