Probate complexities often hinge on understanding key phases, with ‘discovery‘ being a critical one. This article clarifies what discovery involves in probate cases and when it becomes essential.

When Does Discovery Become Necessary in Probate?

Discovery isn’t always a part of probate. In informal or uncontested cases, you might not need it. The purpose of discovery is to ensure access to relevant information for all involved parties. Here are situations where discovery proves crucial:

  1. Clarifying Heirship Disputes: When uncertainty or disagreements about beneficiaries arise, discovery plays a key role in gathering information to resolve these issues.
  2. Gathering Expert Witness Opinions: In cases questioning the testator’s mental capacity, experts like medical professionals offer vital insights. Discovery enables the collection and review of these expert opinions.
  3. Accessing Financial Documents: For contested asset distributions, discovery involves obtaining financial records like bank statements to clarify estate allocations.
