Many wills pass through the probate process without having any problems. There are some wills, however, that will be challenged during the probate process. While it isn't very common, anyone who is going to have to deal with a will in the future should know some of the reasons why a will might be challenged.
In our post last week, we discussed the case of Ernie Banks' will. If you recall, that will, which was filed by his caregiver, is being contested by his wife. It is for anyone who is dealing with a will to understand how different aspects of the estate can lead to either ordinary or extraordinary legal services. In the case of a contested will, the legal services would be considered extraordinary.
